Last week, students from Foundation through to Year 7 participated in a round of House competitions during their PE lessons. Students competed in a variety of activities, which included competitions in obstacle course races, dodgeball, bench ball, golf, dragon island, swimming races and skipping challenges. It was fantastic to see students of all ages wearing their House t-shirts throughout the week, which gave a competitive feel around the school and between students and staff! All who participated had a fantastic time competing for and supporting their Houses. Well done to Hoba house who finished first with 79 points overall!
1st Hoba- 79 points
2nd Murchison- 75 points
3rd Esquel- 73 points
4th Loreto- 68 points
During break times, Primary and Secondary students will have the chance to take part in further challenges to gain points for their House.
Primary students have been taking part in activities such as skipping and hula hoop. Students can have as many turns as they want to whilst allowing as many students to take part in the time allocated. Points are recorded on the whiteboard for all to see so students know the scores they have to beat. At the end of the week, the students with the top scores will be awarded points for their House.
Secondary students started their programme on Thursday. Students take as many turns at the chosen event as they can, with points awarded to the house with both the best score and the highest number of entries. The first event was the standing long jump – a test of how far you can jump without a run-up. Loreto recorded the best score with 2.05m by Venkata Konagandla, while Murchison won the most entries with 32. The break time programme will continue each week until the end of term.
