For the last two weeks the students have been playing hockey.
In Prep, one and two, we have been using plastic sticks and balls.
In grades 3,4,5 and 6 we have been using real wooden hockey sticks and real hockey balls.
We found out some students can hit the ball very, very hard.
We do have lots of brand new equipment but we also have some old sticks and Adam hit the ball so hard, his stick ended up in two pieces.
We were lucky to have Alex wear the protective clothing that he uses when he plays as a goalkeeper at his hockey club.
Alex is allowed to use his “kickers” to kick the ball away. We tried to score goals against Alex and he was able to save most of the shots.
Students learnt to pass, trap, dribble and shoot.
Next week we will be learning to play golf.
