Goalball is a Paralympic sport in which the blind can play with the sighted – as the sighted participants are blindfolded. We learned about Goalball from our long-term partners and friends at the Laski Institute – a school for the blind and visually impaired in Poland. We have had many exchanges with this partner school, and Goalball has been part of all of them! We continue playing at the College, as one of our goals is to promote this inclusive, exciting sport in Norway. We have regular practice sessions every Sunday night and, as an end of term celebration, we decided to organize an Inter-House competition. Each House has some experienced players, so the level was high with the final match between Iceland and Norway House.
Even though Iceland House won, the Norway House Team displayed very high competence and won an award for the most sporting behaviour.
