The workshop will cover carnival organisation, developing draws, developing school based tabloid programs K-Y6, teaching fundamental movement skills and learning about motivating and appropriate resource use.
On 23rd October at Howmans Gap Alpine Centre we conducted a one day skills workshop for staff from schools within the Walbundrie and Balldale Zone PSSA. Parents and some undergraduate teachers attended also.
The thirteen participants enjoyed a fantastic workshop learning how to plan, conduct and evaluate sport sessions not normally available to students. We involved Y5/6 students in the sessions as well. Sports covered were orienteering, challenge and initiative games, archery and canoeing. We also covered organising carnivals and tabloid days as well as looking at ways for more of our schools to be involved in Active After School Games. The day was so successful we are going to conduct it every two years.
