Mitchell Holiday Blogging WLJ #7

Hello blog viewers today is day 7 the last day of the blogging week. Today's post will be about people with disabilities who compete in the Olympics.

Activity 1: If I was competing in the 2016 Paralympics I would have to choose someone to compete with. I would pick my mum. She is trustworthy and reliable.

Activity 2: It is very unaffordable for  athletes to pay to fly over. They need the MONEY!!!
Here are 2 ways I would do to fundraise for these athletes

. Everyday I would hold a $5 carwash for every car who needs cleaning including vacuuming inside their car that way $5 per car could go to an higher price

. I would sell street food on the road for as well $5. It would be Delicious food for anyone hungry and would sure.

Bonus: If I were to be in the Paralympic committee and I was asked to make up an new sport I would name mine Hit It. The aim of the is to hit the ball on the pole in the center of the court. Team members have to pass to each other in order for their team to win. For the deaf others can do hand signals to know they are passing to them. For the blind an person who is not disabled can be on their side as they play. Here are 3 rules.

. You cannot Hit the ball on the pole if you are close to it. You have to be five meters away.
. You are not allowed to throw the ball to an blind person when they don't know you are passing to them.
.  You can only move when you are catching the ball.

Thanks for reading

  1. Hi Mitchell,

    Firstly, huge congratulations on completing the Winter Learning Journey programme. You have done so well! I am very impressed with your dedication, determination and commitment. You are the one of the first people to finish the entire programme at Pt England. I hope that you're really proud of yourself. I am!

    Secondly, I really enjoyed this post on the Paralympic games that you wrote. I think that you have come up with some great ideas for a new sport ('Hit It' sounds like fun!) and for a way to raise funds for our athletes. I think that you could raise quite a bit of money by washing/vacuuming cars and by selling street food. When you say 'street food,' are you referring to food that can be prepared in trucks that are parked on the street or something else? It's not a term that I'm overly familiar with...

    Thanks again, Mitchell, for taking part in the Winter Learning Journey. It was such a pleasure to read your posts and to provide comments. I really hope that you'll consider participating in the next version of our holiday blogging programme. It will be offered next summer :)

    Cheers, Rachel
