By Mr. James Brook, P.E. Specialist
Each Wednesday, students in the Secondary School gather for Community Time, one of the many activities that make our school special. For two hours, students take part in custom-designed activities that help them develop academically, socially and personally outside of the classroom environment. As part of Community Time this week, the Year 9 Sports Leaders coordinated an indoor athletics competition between the Year 7 and 8 Advisory Groups (like homerooms).
To kick off the event, competitors took part in a multi-skills circuit that tested precision, endurance, balance and coordination. Then, they conquered the main event: indoor track races. Each race saw students trying to outrun their peers to secure points for their respective Advisory Groups. When the games came to an end, Ms. Currie’s Year 7 and Mr. Davies’ Year 8 Advisory Groups took the win.
The Year 9 Sports Leaders also expanded their mentoring outside of Community Time to timetabled P.E. lessons. In the fitness suite, they helped peers develop exercise programs, relating the session to the work of a fitness instructor.
The entire Middle School showed exceptional character, commitment and fitness prowess this week. Well done!
