Let's Get Physical!

Education Week - Sports Day 2016

It was a perfect day for sport because the sky was blue and sunny. It’s Friday 20th May and ‘Let’s Get Physical’ day was part of our Education Week program. All children from Prep to Year 6 participated in a variety of activities.

 

Prep and Year 1 participated in an AFL football clinic run by AFL schools followed by their weekly PMP session.

 

I think everyone one enjoyed all of the activities, even some of the teachers got involved in some of them. All of the kids were very enthusiastic about the activities, even if they didn’t really like doing sports.  A huge thanks to all the Year 6 students who made the day run smoothly and reminded all students that ‘Number one is fun’ when it comes to sport.
