Active Schools - February

1st Mar 2019

These last two months have been very active here in St. Helen's.

Starting with February, we continued our Climb The Heights challenge as we skip our way up all the major peaks in Europe. The children and teachers have gotten great enjoyment from this challenge with most classes completing the challenge mid-way through the month. 

We are very grateful to our guest, Ms. Glover, who did some great work for our active school flag in February. She created a wonderful sign as you come in the door to remind all visitors that we are an active school. She also took all classes out for a challenging orienteering course around the school. It was a great and enjoyable experience for all. Finally, she introduced basketball workshops for all children during lunchtime. Thank you Ms. Glover!

Another exciting development in February was the beginning of a series of coaching lessons by the local RedRox Baseball Club. 3rd-5th classes received coaching over 6 weeks. It was a great experience learning some new skills, and a new sport!
