Sports Update Term Two
Term two will be an eventful term, with many exciting sporting opportunities.
One of the main focuses for term two is the cross country. On Friday 23rd June 2017 the Pre-Primary to year six students will participate in the Saint Joseph’s cross country. During sport lessons the students have been preparing for this event. It is shaping up to be a great event.
Throughout term two the students of Saint Joseph’s are raising money for the Heart Foundation through ‘Jump Rope for Heart Skip off’. Students have been given the opportunity to fundraise for the Heart Foundation. Recess, lunch and sport lessons see students practise their skipping skills. On Wednesday 28th June 2017 to celebrate all the students’ hard work a ‘Skip Off’ will be held. This is an afternoon where students get to show off their new skipping skills.
Alongside the cross country and skipping, students from year three to six have been focusing on AFL this term. From weeks five to eight a representative from the Sporting Schools program will be in to run advanced AFL clinics with the students. The students have been extremely engaged and love learning new skills or ways to improve their AFL skills.
Kindy to year two focus has been on the fundamental movement skills. Over the last two terms the students have been working on their static balance, hopping, jumping, galloping, throwing and catching, through a range of interactive and engaging games. It has been great to see such enjoyment and improvement.
Overall it has been fantastic to see such sportsmanship, engagement and fun being had during term two sport lessons.
