HEALTH & PHYSICAL EDUCATION
With Term 1 coming to an end, it is time to reflect on what students have achieved and what they will continue to achieve inTerm 2.
The Year 8 students have been working hard during their Athletics unit. Over the past 4 weeks, students have been getting involved in Shot Put, Discus, Javelin, Hurdles and High Jump. Students’ efforts won’t go to waste with the upcoming Athletics Carnival in early Term 2.
Below are some High Jump action shots from 8I!

The Year 9’s have been loving their new unit on Lacrosse which finishes up in Week 11.
Lacrosse is a sport that allows all students to begin on an even playing field…. It’s skilful, engaging and challenging for all students who have never picked up a Lacrosse stick before. It has been fantastic to see the growth and confidence in students in throwing, catching, offensive and defensive skills during game play.
Here’s some of our awesome 9I students practising their scooping and throwing motion.

The students aim was to focus on scooping their lacrosse ball into their scoop and throw it back to their partner in 1 swift motion. The goal of their partner was to receive the ball by holding their stick above their head and to see how many they could get.

Year 12 Physical Education
VCE PE can often encompass a lot of theoretical knowledge and understanding. It is so important for students to be able to apply their theory on a practical level. Below is one of our VCE classes utilising their knowledge of inertia, force and impulse using hockey sticks and different types of pucks on the tennis courts. Students then reflected on the ability of the puck to move across the field. Well done Year 12’s!

The Year 9 Bike Education students experienced their first practical ride down to Lilydale Lake last week. After many weeks planning and learning the importance of bike and rider safety, it was a great day to get out and enjoy the sunshine.
Volleyball Training Tuesday Afternoons
Volleyball training is continuing to be a popular after school activity. It runs from 3-4pm in the ECA for the girls and boys Inter-School sports teams. Here are some awesome action shots of the junior and middle years teams at work. It has only been 1 week but both teams should be proud of the progress they have made and will continue to make.
Congratulations to our Intermediate girls and boys Volleyball teams that made it to Regionals for Inter-School Sports. Both teams competed extremely well coming into their final round undefeated but going down in the finals. The students should be extremely proud of themselves and the hard work they put in demonstrating the college values, particularly Resilience and Endeavour.
