In Term 3, Turtles have a rare opportunity to be coached by their fellow Senior School Student Luke from the Adolescent Program. Turtles’ first lesson was filled with a range of fun and exciting team-building games introducing them to the basic techniques and rules of Lawn Bowls.
Coach Luke started with a warm-up of stretches highlighting the importance of preparing the body for physical activity before running through five different stations. Turtles jumped straight into tag-team games, rounds of tunnel ball, bowling through mini hurdles, and a final game to see which best technique could aim for the highest points onto a target mat. Maybel mastered the perfect roll to score 100 points on the target mat. Each student is eager to practice again on Wednesday afternoons to top their personal best and learn more bowling skills from their awesome coach Luke.
We would also like to congratulate Luke on his early offer from Murdoch University to undertake a Bachelor of Education specialising in Physical Education for 2022.
