Fundamental movement skills have continued to be the focus for the Early Years, and we have seen a significant improvement in the abilities of children coming up from Pre-Primary and applying their skill base to the Junior Years curriculum. The cumulative effect of this has also been evident in the senior grades where students have applied their understanding of body movement and object control to focus on game play situations and tactics to implement in offensive and defensive roles. Similar skills were taught across terms through a variety of sports, providing students with the opportunity to see how skills can be transferred across sporting codes.
The success of Challis student learning was evident in their achievements at interschool events. We again sent two teams of girls to the Girl’s Multisport Carnival, one in Term 1 and again in Term 4. Unfortunately, the Summer Carnival in Term 1 was cancelled but we are looking to revive it in Term 1 of 2023.
Interschool achievements continued on into the Winter Carnival with Challis taking out the championship shields in Netball and Soccer. The interschool Athletics Carnival was a highlight of the year with students taking out the Overall Champions shield for the second year in a row. Individual achievements at this event were also high with Challis students medalling in all year groups. We look forward to continuing this winning streak in 2023 and beyond.
