Students from our ASD provision have been learning skateboarding, thanks to Manchester-based company ProjektsMCR, which is based under the Mancunian Way flyover.
They have been learning basic balancing skills, how to ride on the skateboard and how to do turns and tricks.
Each week they will build on their knowledge and experience, eventually learning more technical and advanced skills.
ASD Specialist Mr Nnadede explained the 13 week programme aims to encourage social interaction between our students from the ASD provision to improve their socialising and interacting skills.
“Because most of our students have additional learning difficulties, this intervention in essence is to build self-esteem and confidence through a structured learning/play approach outside the school setting.”
