Netball Update

29/10/2019
​Year 3 -6 Netball practice
We have had a fabulous response to the Term 4 Magnetic Island Netball Tournament, with over 50 students from Years 3 to 6 keen to join a team and take part. Most of these students spent each Thursday, throughout the second half of term 3, practising netball skills and get-ting to know their teammates, and now the tournament is well underway. The main purpose of the tournament is to allow students to learn the rules and skills of netball in a fun, competitive environment. Mrs Wilson is super impressed with the skills being demonstrated, and more importantly, the fantastic cooperation and sportsmanship shown at each game.
A huge shout out to the Year 5 & 6 students who have been assisting with games and helping other students learn the rules and ‘have a go’. These students have demonstrated patience, leadership and responsibility, whilst the students who are still learning, through playing the game, have shown courage, resilience, respect and active listening.
Each team have now played, and we are recording their scores, so that we can have finals later in the term. With many more games to be played before determining the finalists, all team members have more opportunities to refine their skills and master the game. And of course…it is great fitness and super fun!
