Prep to Year 2 Athletics Carnival

We were very fortunate that on Thursday 20 October the sun was shining for the Prep to Year 2 Athletics Carnival.

The girls were very excited to showcase their skills for their visitors.

Whether it was skipping, jumping hurdles, completing the obstacle course or catching their Year 6 buddy, all girls performed well and enjoyed themselves.

Team spirit was very evident with House Captains encouraging their fellow young House mates to cheer or finish their race.

A highlight for many of our Prep and Year 1 girls was catching their buddy in the ‘catch your pony’ race.

Many conversations were overheard between Year 6 girls and their buddies commenting on how much they loved participating in the event when they were in Prep.

Bike Education for Year 6

On a bright sunny Wednesday afternoon the Barbreck Year 6 girls commenced the first week of a four week Bike Education course.

The course is aimed at improving the bike skills of our students so they can enjoy the many bike paths our city has to offer.

After two training days around School we plan to venture further afield and discover the Yarra Trails and surrounding park lands of Kevin Bartlett Reserve and Kooyong Park.
