At Glasshouse Christian College, we believe in the power of ending the school week on a positive note, and that’s why we have something special for our Year 4 students every Friday afternoon. As the week comes to a close, the excitement builds as they eagerly anticipate the start of their much-loved activity and game session.
During this dedicated time, our Year 4 students are given the opportunity to unwind, let loose, and simply have fun. It’s a time when the pressures of schoolwork fade away, and the focus shifts to enjoyment and camaraderie. The activities and games selected for these afternoons are carefully curated to engage their minds, foster teamwork, and promote physical activity.
From team sports such as soccer and basketball to creative challenges like building structures with Lego blocks or solving puzzles, our Year 4 students are immersed in a diverse range of activities. These experiences not only provide them with a chance to explore different interests and talents but also encourage them to develop crucial social and cooperative skills.
The benefits of this dedicated time extend beyond just the immediate enjoyment. By engaging in these activities and games, our Year 4 students learn valuable life lessons such as teamwork, sportsmanship, problem-solving, and resilience. They discover the importance of communication, compromise, and supporting their peers, all while having a blast.
It’s heartwarming to witness the laughter, smiles, and camaraderie that fill the air during these Friday afternoon sessions. The positive energy created in this special time ripples through the entire school, leaving a lasting impact on our students, staff, and even the wider community.
We firmly believe that providing our Year 4 students with this opportunity to unwind and have fun at the end of the week is crucial for their overall well-being and academic success. By creating a space for them to recharge and rejuvenate, we foster a positive school culture that promotes balance, happiness, and a love for learning.
So, as Friday afternoons approach, we invite you to join us in celebrating the joy and excitement that fills the air during our Year 4 activity and game sessions. It’s a time for our students to flourish, grow, and create lasting memories, all while ending the school week on a positive note.
