It has been an active term for our students, beginning with the annual cross country carnival for Classes 4 to 6. Their enthusiasm and sportsmanship were contagious, as was their determination, with even the fastest running more than 12 minutes without pause, and house captains coming up with some creative chants and cheerleading routines in support.
Students from Classes 7 to 10 were busy practising their volleyball skills in preparation for the carnival with Cape Byron Steiner school on May 21 and 28 - a great mix of competition and social interaction, which the students really enjoyed. This is something we would like to continue with other local schools and sports.
Sport elective Year 9 and 10 students have been surfing this block lesson - a magical time to be out in the surf. Students had some experienced staff sharing their skills and knowledge and were amazed at how much detail is involved in having a safe and enjoyable surfing session. Watch this space for more news on the High School surfing program.
Students from Class 3 to 6 are currently enjoying gymnastics and circus classes with Spaghetti Circus as part of the Australian Sporting Schools program.
Thank you to the supporting staff from all areas of the school that contribute to these fabulous and fun events for our students.
