Paralympics New Zealand invites you to be part of a new and innovative initiative! The Para Sport Pop Up is travelling around New Zealand in the lead up to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, telling the story of New Zealand’s 50-year Paralympic history, increasing awareness of Para sport and positively influencing community perceptions of disabled people.
 
Come and enjoy our different ‘have a go’ Para sport activities including:

  • Vertical jump test challenge
  • Handcycle challenge
  • Give Wheelchair basketball a go
  • Play a Boccia game
  • Get a photo with Someity, Tokyo 2020 mascot
  • Blind football virtual reality experience
  • Learn more about Para sport
  • Meet with Paralympians, Para athletes or local Para sport organisations
  • Leave messages of support for the New Zealand Paralympic Team.

We would like to invite some of your students to the Para Sport Pop Up on Monday 16 November.

We would recommend groups of approximately 25 to ensure your students can enjoy the full experience. So you may want to bring various groups throughout the day!

One session lasts approximately 45 minutes.

Date: Monday 16 November, 10am–4pm. 

Commonwealth Walkway, Wellington 6011– In front of Te Papa Museum
