To celebrate Health, PE and Environment Week from 31 August to 4 September, the PE Learning Area joined with the Sustainability and Environment Team to design an action packed engaging five-day program for the whole College community.
WFC@Home Olympics embraced the Olympic spirit of the postponed Tokyo Games to encourage everyone to get moving and be sustainable. Students and staff have enjoyed a variety of activities across the week.
Starting on Move it Monday students were encouraged to move with two awesome sessions on offer. Students, staff and their children, took part in a Live Basketball Skills Session with expert basketballer Joe Mutimer (class of 2019) and a Live Personal Training Session with Byron Koester (Immortal Fitness). A week-long competition to find the best Strava artist was also announced.
Tasty Tuesday provided students the chance to explore their sustainable food side to create a vegetarian meal, whilst Wellbeing Wednesday allowed students to take some time out and be mindful. Ben Horsnaill of Year 12 Trinity showed us how with a fantastic video on Forest Bathing.
Watch the videos here:
Year 11 PE students also incorporated these activities as part of their practical work in a unit an Activity Planning.
Wednesday also offered staff an opportunity to do some Self Care with Carly from Diamond Valley Myotherapy and Exercise to work on their posture and release some tight neck muscles.
Technique Thursday allowed students to work on refining any number of sporting skills, which was also incorporated into the Jnr Sport Program. Students and staff were also able to fine tune their motivational skills with a 30 sec motivational Rev Up.
Finally Fun Friday provided excitement with Mr Murphy and School Captain Alex Dunmill attempting to beat the Guinness World record for most peas eaten with a toothpick in 30 seconds, challenging staff and students to do the same. Students also took part in the Famous Sporting faces competition.
