Fun Day out for Run Around Australia Winners



  • November 6, 2013

It was a full day of action and fun for 5G as they celebrated winning the Run Around Australia Challenge. After getting overheated by squeezing through Mrs Stott’s material tunnels, the class was ready for the challenge of the obstacle course at the Kawana Aquatic Centre. It was trickier than it looked and even the most confident and sporty students found themselves slipping off or clinging to the inflated obstacles before splashing into the pool. Eventually we all got better at balancing and clinging on and most students successfully completed the course jubilantly sliding into the water to finish.

The class enjoyed each other’s company whilst having a picnic at the pool and then the action at the skate park began. Students donned their protection gear and rollerblades, scooters and skateboards were soon being ridden all over the skate park. Some clever tricks were demonstrated by students and everyone enjoyed exploring the ramps, rails and half pipes.

The outing was concluded with some messy games involving slime at a local beach. The faces of students had to be seen as they were asked to catch unknown objects soaked in slime. Jelly fish and rubber snakes were particularly scary for some.

Year 5G would like to thank the wonderful parents who accompanied them on the day and will run hard again next year aiming to gain the prize outing again!
