Pupils to learn about Paralympics
The British Paralympic Association and the UK's largest teaching union have produced a series of educational resources about disability sport.

The multi-media programme, called Ability vs Ability is available on DVD, CD, via a website and as hard copy.

The programme includes lesson plans, quizzes, factfiles about the Paralympic movement and interviews with top British Paralympians.

The official launch was attended by Sports Minister Richard Caborn.

He said: "The UK has a long history of Paralympic success and we need to make sure that success is developed - and mirrored - at school level.

"If we are going to continue to excel at Paralympic sport, we must make sure it's embedded in our school sports programme.

"By raising awareness amongst teachers and students, I hope this multi-media programme will go some way to achieving that."

BPA chief executive Phil Lane added that he hoped the programme would "serve as an inspiration to school teachers and Britain's youngsters".
