Co-Curricular Sport - still time to join the fun

03 March 2022

The Co-Curricular Sport offerings have grown over the years and much more than just sport activities are now offered before and after school. Yet, all had to rest during COVID as only core educational programs were allowed to run. Now that we are back, we are happier and better for it!

Many students are now returning to all the great activities we offer at Glenaeon. Currently basketball, fencing, archery, yoga, athletics/fitness, soccer for the little ones and badminton are all running. We hope to get enough interest for a middle school soccer activity (not a team, just fun training!), Frisbee, netball and others if interest is there and we have 10 or more students signing up or inquiring for (any) sport from Term 2. For archery and yoga we accept the Active Kids Vouchers, so please inquire and sign up via GLO or send me an email Badminton on Mondays, athletics/fitness/games on Tuesday mornings as well as primary school soccer on Tuesday afternoons is now full for Term 1. But yoga (Wednesdays before school), fencing (Thursdays before school and archery (Fridays after school) are all still welcoming new students (pro rata payment available).

I run the Tuesday morning athletics/fitness/games activity with 25 students currently enrolled. It comes with a small and healthy breakfast afterwards. As the pictures show, we went for a 1km morning run in the bushland surrounding the school on our first outing before all this rain came down! There’s a huge cave we visited on our way back and the students small and tall were keen to explore the area as the sun made its way up starting to warm and greet the day.

We hope all students have settled in well and we invite them to sign up for one of the many co-curricular activities we offer across a whole range of areas. We also hope that your child will play in some of the upcoming carnivals as we invite anyone who has some expertise in a given sport and is in Year 7 – Year 12 to make themselves heard and speak to me and possibly get a spot on one of the teams this year! If not this year, then next year when they’re a bit older and have found their feet in Year 8.
