Physical Education News

The Physical Education programme is benefitting greatly from the expertise of the coaches from Northern Districts Gymnastics, who have been in helping to run the gymnastics programme at Scotch the past couple of weeks. All the students from Year 1 - 5 have been working on the fundamentals of gymnastics: strength, flexibility and discipline. The students have been pushing their known limits and it has been pleasing to see all the different abilities in the room strive to achieve their personal best. The Year 4 boys went off to Hale recently to participate in the first of six carnivals they will be participating in against Hale and Christ Church this year. By all accounts the boys performed admirably. This Thursday sees the culmination of the JPSSA summer programme with the Family Member Day. We look forward to seeing many parents and family members down at Scotch enjoying this afternoon with their sons.
