Students reach new heights
SCHOOL of Total Education (SOTE) students know it’s not all about winning as they get right into the spirit of their Athletics sports day yesterday.
Physical Education Teacher Ian Rowling organised the event with the Year 8 to 12 students splitting up into three teams Wiggles, High Five and Hooley Dooleys.
“We have had every single student participate in every event which is great,” Mr Rowling said.
Principal Richard Waters said it was an athletics day but because the school has a general ethos of non-competition we handle it differently to other schools.
“Our emphasis is on participation and the enjoyment of the activities,” Mr Waters said.
“It takes the emphasis off winning and puts the emphasis on enjoyment while allowing students to do their best.”
