· Numeracy based PE games were set up all week for classes to play with at their leisure in their lesson times.
· There was also a ‘PE week @ PEPS’ quiz and take home ‘task sheet’ that students were invited to fill in, finish and hand in to win awesome prizes which were awarded at the assembly on Thursday.
· The Assembly also had special past PEPS students, who are State Representatives in Surf Boat Rowing, speak to the students and help out with the prizes.
· Lots of students took up the opportunity to wear sports clothing on Thursday and looked fantastic.
· On Monday, staff (and a few Year 6’s) took on the Year 7’s in a friendly, fun football match. The staff team did win the match (with great assistance from the wind).
· On Thursday staff played the Year 7 students in a netball match. It was a great game, played with a lot of skill and everyone had a lot of fun.
Overall, the students and staff had a great week with many Physical Education opportunities. A fun, active week for all!
