BEING back at school for our students is more than just a return to face to face learning and a chance to catch up with their friends.
The staff at St Cuthbert’s Catholic School are privileged to have elite athletes and young leaders working with students.
Due to all our sporting engagements being curtailed by the current restrictions, we have been able to institute a replacement in the form of ‘Super Skills Sessions’.
The purpose of our super sessions is to develop skills, build fitness, and teamwork.
Grace Jacobson, who is our first AFL sports ready trainee and also plays for the Karana Flames in the Tasmanian Netball League, Lauderdale Football Club co-captain Josh McGuinness, and Declan Brown, who plays for Olympia Football Club Warriors in the National Premier League Tasmania, have created a unique opportunity for our students.
The students were delighted to find that Friday afternoons were now dedicated to these skills sessions.
“It was great to get back outside and be active after weeks at home,” year six student Joel Vallerine said.
“We are lucky that the awesome staff at St Cuthbert’s can give us such great opportunities,” year six student Isobel Mitchell said.
It is an exciting time of growth for St Cuthbert’s.
Construction of our Early Years Learning Centre and redevelopment of outdoor learning environments later in 2020 are poised to shape the landscape of learning for our community.
All are welcome.
