The playground is a wonderful place for students to be active, play with friends and challenge themselves.
Students have shown persistence and resilience while learning new skills and trying new pieces of equipment. Many students enjoy showing educators new skills or tricks they have learnt while playing and experimenting. The rock climbing walls, slides, monkey bars and trampolines have been very popular pieces of equipment that the students regularly use. The playground is also a great place for students to socialise and make new friendships with students from other year levels.
During the winter months and warmer days through summer, the weather sometimes prevents us from using the playground, so students continue to participate in active play areas such as the Undercroft and the Gymnasium. These areas give students more opportunities to play with equipment such as balls, balloons, hula hoops, skipping ropes and cones. They also join in with educator-led group games such as: Duck, Duck Goose, All Over Red Rover, Splat, and Line Chasey.
