On Monday 4th of March Coach Approach visited the Grade 4’s at Apollo. Coach Approach is a national organisation made up of elite and professional athletes from a wide variety of sports. Members of their team have competed at Olympic, Commonwealth, International or State level. The Grade 4’s participated in different activities including Taekwondo, Circus Tricks, Teamwork, a ‘Strive and Thrive’ presentation and Dancing. The students enjoyed their day immensely and it complemented our inquiry unit focusing on overcoming challenges and utilising a growth mindset.
In the aftermath of camp being postponed due to the bushfires, the Grade 6 team has organised a week of enjoyable team building, interactive activities designed to challenge and engage the students. The activities include code breaking, dance battles, abstract design creations, the making of zines, a dodgeball tournament, trivia and synchronised Spheros.
It’s been amazing to see how positive and resilient the students have been.
The Grade 3 students had their first local walk last Thursday the 28th of February. They were welcomed to the Diamond Valley Library where the students were able to walk around this well resourced community space to explore. The students particularly enjoyed investigating the different fruit and vegetables growing in the community garden and having a go on the slippery slide. Before the session ended, Kate treated the students to a reading of some well loved children publications, ‘Grug’ and ‘Elmer the Elephant’.
