Over the last 4-6 weeks people have experienced a number of challenges, one of which is the challenge of remaining active. With gyms, parks and beaches closed and all sporting competitions suspended, it has been difficult to remain physically active at this time. It has been so amazing to see how students have been able to stay active with their families at home. Students have been enthusiastic, energetic and proactive about physical activity in this time of isolation.

Some Bishop Tyrrell Primary students have remained active by creating obstacle courses, making up new games, jumping on their trampolines, following an exercise clip on YouTube, doing Yoga and many, many more ways. I hope we can all use this as inspiration to make sure we stay active every day.

As students return to school, sport and physical activity will take place with minimal equipment and adhering to social distancing measures as best as possible. All school sport competitions have been suspended until the end of Term 2.

Secondary students have remained in good spirits and have been using PDHPE lessons and sport time to participate in their 150 minutes of school-based physical activity each week. Many have been using the suggestions available on CALEB in this term’s Physical Activity Matrix, while others have been pursuing their own interests.
