Sport at St Paul’s in Term 2 has focused heavily on Athletics: Track and Field Events.
For senior students, weekly PE lessons and Friday afternoon sessions were timetabled to give students the opportunity to experience and practices different Track and Field Events: 800m, 200m, 100m, Shot Put, High Jump, Long Jump & Team games. All working towards beating and being their personal best, as well as trying to qualify for the District and/or Inter Lutheran Athletics Team.
Junior students also experienced the fun of particular Athletic and Team Game Events: Long Jump, High Jump, Target/Rainbow Throw, Tug of War, Ball Games, Egg and Spoon races, & Sprint races. The Juniors were very excited and enthused to practice these events, as they knew they had to perform them at the recent Junior School Sports Day Carnival.
Next term, Junior School classes get to explore the art and skill of Gymnastics – fundamental movements. Information of a performance showcase at the end of term will be highly likely. Senior students will be involved in a few units: Tradition Indigenous Games, Ultimate Frisbee & Touch Football. They can also look forward to representing St Paul’s at the annual Inter Lutheran Athletics Carnival, and being involved, once again, in the Sports Gala Days: Girls Netball or Touch Football & Boys Cricket, as well as nominating at Year 4-6 team for the Netball Primary School Cup mid-September.
