Swimming Sports was on Thursday the 27th of February and the day was split into two parts. Pod 4 started in the morning with a slight drizzle and a chill in the air whilst Pod 3 were baked in the afternoon sun. Everyone was looking forward to a great day. Chants were sung, families cheering, and each race started with a bang. The water was cold but the children were swimming their fastest. There were Freestyle, Backstroke, and Breaststroke races. There were house relays and Pod 4 was lucky enough to have a race to find out who was the fastest Year 5 and Year 6 swimmer. House points were given to quick swimmers and those with great sportsmanship. The fastest Shelly Park Swimmers are going to the interschool competition to compete against other schools. Ka Pai to both Pod 3 and 4 for an amazing day of swimming!
Shelly Park is lucky to have a gymnastics team. The children in Pod 3 and 4 are able to join and have fun. It is located in the hall on Monday and Thursday lunch times each week.
The Girls and Boys have 3 routines to practise. The girls have to learn Beam, Floor and Vault while the boys have to learn Bar, Floor and Vault. On the 21st of August 2019, Shelly Park sent lots of children to compete in the interschool’s competition. Everyone had lots of fun and enjoyed the day. Some children got a certificate and are now moving on to the Champions of Champions competition. .
Thank you to all the parents that came to watched and supported us. Also a big thank you to all the teachers that helped with coaching the teams. It wouldn’t have been possible without you.
Author Visit – James Russell
On the 25th of September a famous author named James Russell came to visit our school. He was here to celebrate Book Week with us. He showed us some of his books he wrote such as The Dragon Hunters, The Dragon Tamers, The Dragon Riders, and The Dragon Defenders Series. He was really funny and we all can’t wait for his new chapter book to come out.
