At the start of the new year pupils have been reflecting on their fitness levels and encouraged to set goals for the new year to improve their health. In lessons, pupils have been completing the ‘bleep test’ to assess their fitness levels and then completing a lesson on training principles to learn skills to improve fitness when training.
The PE department have been delivering assemblies focusing on health and well-being, teaching students about applying training principles to their gym sessions.
In other PE news, the basketball team were back in action this week but struggled against older opposition. Despite it being a difficult game, the team showed a lot of resilience and never gave up. Next week they will have the opportunity to bounce back against Mount St Joseph’s at home.
