Physical Education News

The Junior School boys have an exciting term of Physical Education ahead and with the arrival of the warmer weather, it is a great time to be out making the most of our beautiful fields. Our older boys will be playing European Handball and Cricket in Spring Term. Many of the Year 5 boys will have played Handball in Year 3 so I am sure they will be keen to develop their skills further and get stuck into some great games. Our ELC children and Year 1 and 2 boys will be trying their hand at basketball. There are many valuable skills to be gained from playing basketball, we hope to build on the boys' hand and eye coordination, co-operation and sportsmanship throughout the term, all of which are vital skills for positive and successful participation in all sports and activities. Swimming is also on the program this term for our junior school boys with classes beginning in Week 2 and running throughout the term. The Year 1 and 2 boys will conclude their swimming program with the much anticipated Aqua Fun Day in Week 8. An event all the boys have been sure to remind me about since the beginning of the year. We are all looking forward to a very fun day ahead.
