Last Wednesday, 25 February, about 40 students from Years 2-6 attended the Central Wollongong PSSA District Swimming Carnival. The weather was not very pleasant as it was raining and quite cold, but our school still did very well and had a great time. A few weeks before there was a trial carnival for students to try out and only 2 students got in for each event, so everyone at the district carnival had already tried very hard and they were already winners. Everyone had a great day and Mrs Wakeham and Mrs Hickey both did a great job and were very happy with how well we went considering the weather. Claudia is going to the Regional Carnival for the 13 yrs girls freestyle. We all had a great time and were very proud to represent our school.
On the 27th of March The Dragons had a visit to Wollongong West Public School to talk about key facts about your health and some interesting information about the some of the players. They showed a few slide shows about healthy eating, good food like eat fruit and vegetables and drink lots of water everyday. You also need to do fitness everyday for at least 15-30 minutes to keep fit healthy.
Next we did some quick trivia of the players, they explained their information before such as: Favourite food, after game relaxation and other questions like apple or orange. If you answered question right you got a small prize like a lunch box or drink bottle.
After we grouped up in circles. The players tried to trick us by doing a dummy at us. If we reacted by attempting to catch it, you’re out. Then we grouped up in some lines. We did some different types of relays such as running with the ball then passing it to the front of the line. The next type of relay was doing a quick grubber kick to the front of the line, basically the same as the previous relay.
After all the trivia questions and all the player information and the quick fitness session they had to leave to go to another school.
