From Director of Co-Curricular, Mr Steve O’Donnell

Winter Co-Curricular and House Points Challenge

Welcome back to all students. It was great to see so many happy and enthusiastic smiling faces back at school this week.

We are launching our House Points Challenge website this week, to allow all students in Years 5 to 12 to participate in a range of activities at home and obtain points for their House. These activities are based on positive wellbeing and there will be individual prizes each term, as well as a prize for the champion House. There will also be weekly challenges posted and a regular updated score on the website.

This week we also commenced some modified small group training for some of our winter activities, based on guidelines and directives for training and exercise. We have also implemented appropriate hygiene practices, with all equipment regularly sanitised and no contact between students training in groups of nine. From next week, we will start to look at implementing training for more students with field space, hygiene and disinfecting practices being implemented. Training will be in small groups and may involve only one session per week until further restrictions are lifted, to allow us to implement social distancing on the fields and courts. Basic fitness and skills will be the base type of training. However, all students are also encouraged to keep working on their individual physical exercise for their own health and wellbeing.

At this time we are still organising staff, field/court space and timetables. Further details will be communicated as soon as we have them.
