Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

What a month we had ....

 

We kicked of Disability History Month in style, with a range of giveaways in The Hub! This included being in with a chance to win Amazon vouchers in return for learning some basic sign langauge, taught by your own community officer! This was followed by our community film night, showing 'The Theory of Everything', which was a great way to connect together as a community. 

We also held a key speaker talk with Cllr Christine Thomas (chair of the councils Disability and Equalities Advisory Panel) and Sarah Lewis (Group Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Manager), this turned out to be a highly engaging and informative afternoon, in which we discussed how to make Coventry City Centre a more accessible city for all our students, and new developments that the University is undertaking to ensure it promotes an inclusive environment for its student body. 

 

Finally we held a day of accessbile sports sessions including Boccia, Table Tennis, and an afternoon of Tai Chi, which was made accessible for all by our amazing instructors who adapted traditional movements to work for all abilities. If you're interested in taking part in further Tai Chi sessions, you can register for beginners Tai Chi right here: http://www.coventry.ac.uk/international-students-hub/partnerships-and-places-to-study/confucius-institute/cultural-courses/

 

We can't wait to make Disability History Month even bigger and better for 2019, and in the mean time, we'll be hosting a whole range of activities, events and campaigns throughout the year! See you there...
