Our year 7 and 8 students participated in an incursion run by Proactivity who specialise in promoting teamwork, health and wellbeing through a range of engaging physical activities. These included circus skills, cardio boxing and team building games.
Basic circus skills were learnt very quickly and most students were able to find that they can do something that they previously thought 'impossible'. Skills such as flower sticks and juggling with scarves, bean bags or balls, improved hand-eye coordination, concentration, manipulation, throwing and catching skills.
Cardio Boxing was a high energy and upbeat class that involved shadow boxing, hitting pads and fitness drills. The major benefits of cardio-boxing included increased stamina, strength and agility.
The team building activities with a giant ball were designed to promote communication skills, physical challenges, teamwork and problem solving.
All students were able to get the most out of the experience and finished off the year in sport on a positive note.
