What an exciting day the students had!
We started our day with our 100 metre sprints, where students barracked for their house mates and peers.
Students then separated into their age levels and worked through a rotation of games and activities.
Junior students had a laugh with skipping, mini hurdles, Frisbees and Fox-Tail throws. Senior students worked through and recorded their distances for discuss, shot put, long jump and triple jump.
We then joined our house groups and played some whole school games. These were an amazing way to see our Senior and Junior students working together and cheering for one another in some fun and supportive balloon race competitions. A massive Congratulations to all students for showing resilience when their team may have gone out!
Finally we had our Willow 1000! And what an event to end on. We accessed the paddock next to the school and our Grade 3-6 students ran the massive 1000 metre distance. We saw determination, frustration, exhaustion and elation and are so proud that all students had a go! Massive congratulations to those that came in in the top 3 for each age group! Also, a huge congratulations to those who felt like they wouldn’t make it, but never gave up and persisted to the end!
Overall, we had a fantastic day and the behaviour displayed today made the staff proud! Although we couldn’t have our families involved, we still managed to support one another and create an atmosphere of excitement and engagement!
A massive thank you to Miss Smith for her organisation and to our parent helpers Sam, Natalie and Lisa.
