It’s already Term 2, 2023, and our Year 10 cohort has been busy with a variety of pastoral care activities. At Glasshouse Christian College, we strongly believe in providing holistic education, which includes the academic, social, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our students’ lives.
One of the ways we focus on the social and emotional aspects of our students is through team building and trust activities.
Our Year 10 cohort has been participating in various activities to help build trust and strengthen relationships within their class. These activities include games such as the trust fall, blindfolded obstacle course, and group problem-solving challenges. These activities have been great for our students to develop their teamwork skills and learn to trust and rely on each other.
In addition to team building and trust activities, our Year 10 cohort has also been enjoying some friendly competition. We recently held a 3v3 basketball competition, which was a huge success. Students from different classes formed teams and competed against each other, displaying great sportsmanship and teamwork. During lunch breaks, we have also been having volleyball games, which have been a fun way for our students to relax and socialise with their peers.
At the end of Term 1, we said goodbye to our Japanese exchange student, Shuhiro. As a farewell gesture, we taught her some classic Australian games, including the lamington eating competition, 3-legged race, and egg and spoon race. It was a great way for our students to share their culture and learn more about Japanese culture.
Overall, our Year 10 cohort has been active and engaged in their pastoral care activities, which is great to see. We believe that these activities are crucial for our students’ personal growth and development, and we will continue to provide opportunities for them to learn, grow, and have fun.
