Our Year 4 and 5 students have begun a new “Brain Break Fitness Program” to tie in with their Personal Development and Health units of work. They have been learning how a healthy, safe and active lifestyle can enhance connections with others. Midway through the morning academic session each day, students can be seen running laps around the oval, practising their skipping skills and learning new ball drills and games. Students are often divided into small groups to encourage peer interaction between classes and develop a healthy competitive spirit amongst the cohort. It has been great to see the student’s enthusiasm for being active and the positive impact this fitness break has upon focus when students return to the classroom.
