Highlights for 2016-17

Another great year of Browning Physical Education is wrapping up.  It’s time to look back on some of the highlights of 2016-17:

We participated in the Circus Art Instruction in Physical Education study and had a lot of fun doing it! Students were climbing, rolling, cartwheeling, juggling, hanging, balancing and much, much more.  We all had a total blast!  Thanks to Dr. Dean Kriellaars and everyone else involved in the study.

We had a full slate of intramural programming.  Indoor Soccer, Hockey and Dodgeball were all very successful this year.  Of course the teachers maintained their undefeated record in all sports!  Thanks to all the grade 3-5 students that came out to play.

We had several school sport teams this year.  Cross-Country, Team Handball, Basketball, Badminton, Speed Stacking, and Volleyball.  We saw a great turn out for all teams.  Looking forward to bigger and better things in 2017-18 with an even larger number of grade 5 students.

The 3rd annual High 5 Community 5km Run was wet and rainy again this year, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of the 150+ participants that run in the event.  Thanks to all the volunteers that braved the weather to help make this another memorable event.

In general it was an action packed year for everyone.  We tried out a ton of activities this year, including some new ones, rollerblading, ringette, escape boxes, as well as our usual favourites.

Hope that everyone has a safe, healthy and active summer.  All the best to you and your family.  See you in Sept. 2017!

A few more weeks down, a few more weeks to go

Over the past few weeks in Phys. Ed. we’ve been doing a wide variety of things.  We have been working a bit on our striking.  Students have played some variations of cricket and baseball both indoors and outdoors.  We’ve also been wrapping up our term 3 evaluations for report cards.  This term we are looking at striking, dribbling, static and dynamic balance as our main skills of focus.  Lastly, we’ve had the divisional rollerblade set for two weeks.  Students have been using the drop off/pick up loop as their rollerblading track.  It’s been a really great experience for those students that may not have had the opportunity to rollerblade at home.

Marathon Club has also started winding down.  We will still have practice next week, however, with the big race being on June 18th, it will be our last two practices.  Between parents, siblings and current students we have approximately 30 participants in the 2.6mile Super Run as well as a couple participants doing the 10km event this year.  Best of luck to all of our runners.

The totals are in from our High 5 Community 5km Run.  This year was our biggest year yet with 154 participants!  We also raised over $200.00 for Kidsport Manitoba!  Way to go everyone!  Hope to see all our runners out again next May for the 4th year of our event.
