News from Gymnasium…

This term, the focus for our students has been on Team Sport Skills during our PE sessions.

Our Middle and Senior students have been learning to create space, pass quickly and go backwards to go forwards.  Our Juniors have been focusing on the fundamentals of passing and catching, bounce passing and working together as a team.  Above all we have been playing hard and having fun!

Next term our focus will once again be on the fundamentals of primary school athletics in preparation for our school athletics competition on Thursday, 22 November.  There will even be an opportunity for professional development for our teaching staff and parent volunteers!  Please contact me via email with expressions of interest [email protected]
