Wow, what a week of sport it has been for the Primary children.
The annual Primary School Sports Day had a slightly different look this year, especially for Year 3 to 6 children, as it was held on our school sports field rather than at RMIT University. The sports day was split by year group over consecutive days. However what was the same, and in true BVIS style, there was lots of laughter, enthusiasm and energy shown by all children as they competed for house points in a range of physical literacy planned activities and games.
Some of the activities included, the high jump to test the children’s speed and power; the three-legged race to challenge the children’s coordination and collaborative learning; the frisbee toss testing hand eye coordination skills; basketball shooting to develop their aim and accuracy; the ball rolling game to challenge the children’s agility and quickness and of course not forgetting a BVIS favourite, the tug-of-war to test the children’s teamwork, strength, and sheer grit and determination. There was a well-earned rest at half time before children took to the field again to battle it out in the sprinting races to see who was the fastest boy and girl in their year group.
It has been a wonderful week of sport and it was very pleasing to see, not only the gamesmanship shown by the children, but the respect, care and integrity on display as they competed against one another for their houses.
However, as in any sporting event there can only be one winner and this year’s house champions were Hue!
