Besides enjoying the health benefits of regular exercise, kids who are physically fit sleep better. They’re also better able to handle physical and emotional challenges — from running to catch a bus to studying for a test.

Fitness Testing begins

This Thursday (3rd March) our fitness testing begins with the 30minute run. Students will be running, jogging and walking as many laps of the oval as they can in a 30min time slot. Students are able to sign up for a before school or after school session but spots are filling fast in the before school session.

Next Thursday (10th March) students will also complete the beep test. Results will be tabled and then tests repeated towards the end of 2nd term to measure improvements and overall fitness levels.
