This past week we wrapped up our Team Handball interscholastic teams. Both teams participated in the district 3 friendship tournament. The girls played at Sansome and the boys played at ÉRB. All players did a fantastic job and showed some great improvement this season. The teams will have one last chance to play this month when the face off against the teachers on the last day of school before the holiday break. The next interscholastic team will be basketball. Which will start up in January 2018.
In regular PE classes we continued to work on Throwing and Catching activities. Students are spending classes getting lots of repetitions in overhand throwing, underhand throwing, catching while stationary as well as catching on the move. We will continue to work on these skills in the coming days as we slowly transition into basketball-type activities with the students.
Our intramural soccer season is also winding down. Students can look for a new intramural activity to be starting up in January. We will be following the same schedule. Grade 3s play on Day 3, 4s on Day 4 and 5s on Day 5. The plan right now it to have a “drop in” style month of intramurals where students get a chance to play spike ball, gaga ball and maybe some racquetball.
