I was always included in PE and sport at school. I participated in soccer, dance, gymnastics, cricket, swimming, athletics, softball…

My class mates and I would come up with ideas on how I could participate and it was always fun and it brought everyone together.

When we played soccer, I would be goalie, when we did athletics I participated in the throwing events, for dance I would do as floor routine…

The girls I participated with always had big smiles on their faces that we had achieved!

The only negative was that I always got a ‘D’ grade for PE because I couldn’t compete to the standard that warranted a ‘C’ or a ‘B’. I think my determination and participation should have got me an ‘A’!
