SCH 2011 Special Olympics

For the fourth year in a row, SCH has been invited to participate in the World Disabled Day Games (similar to Special Olympics). Two dozen children and young adults represented SCH this year and competed against students from Uma Manovikas School (for students with intellectual disabilities), Mother Theresa School for the Blind, and the local government School for the Deaf. Our kids had an awesome time!

 Our SCH kids also placed in several events and took home lots of prizes, including the following:

Senior Boys & Girls Musical Chairs: Levi (first) and Daniel (third)
Junior Boys & Girls Musical Chairs: Hannah (second) and Isaac (third)
Senior Boys Running: Daniel (second)
Junior Boys Running: Jason (third)
Junior Girls Running: Honor (first), Nora (second), Hannah (third)
Junior Boys Shotput: Santosh (third)
Senior Boys & Girls Long Jump: Daniel (first)
Junior Boys & Girls Long Jump: Jason (first) and Amanda (third)
Senior Boys & Girls Caroms: Wendy (first)
Junior Boys & Girls Caroms: Christopher (second)
Junior Boys & Girls Ball in the Bucket: Christina (first) and Judah (second)
Senior Boys & Girls Ball Throw: Levi (first)

Proud of everyone for giving it their very best!
