Swimming sports was on Friday the 8th of March and Monday the 11th of March. It was stretched across two days because it started raining on Friday. Everyone was in great spirits both days. The house chants were being sung, parents were cheering and Mr Rjins was starting each race with a bang. Students were diving into the cold water and swimming their fastest. There were freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke races. We even got to do a fun horsey race with the noodles. House points were given out to quick swimmers and students with fantastic sportsmanship. The fastest Shelly Park swimmers are going to the interschool competition to compete against other schools. Ka Pai Pod 3 and 4 for a fantastic day.
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.
