PE News and Updates Week 5

Interschool Tennis Carnival – Red Ball Smash 

For the first time, CPS participated in the Red Ball Smash Interschool Competition, at Wembley Downs Tennis Club.  The event was run by Tennis WA, and the focus of the event was on participation and having fun in a tennis context.  Churchlands sent 4 teams of 8 participants, of year 3 and 4 students, and by all accounts, everyone came away having heaps of fun.  Over the five rounds of matches played, I witnessed a huge improvement in everyone’s tennis play.  Congratulations to Churchlands Team 1, who were crowned champions on the day for their outstanding tennis play.  We are hoping that this event becomes an annual fixture on our school calendar, so get playing and start enjoying some tennis over the warmer months.  

Running Club – ONLY 4 WEEKS TO GO!!!! 

Running club is on Wednesday mornings starting at 8am. For new families to Churchlands PS, running club is where students run laps around the school earning points for their faction. Exercising in the mornings has many health benefits and is a great way to start the day. 

Some benefits include: 

  • improved physical and mental energy,  
  • a better night’s sleep,  
  • help maintain a healthy weight 
  • reach your fitness goals, 
  • enhance your metabolism.   

A reminder that mugs for Milo need to be placed on the table outside the undercover area before 8.15am.  Milo is a reward for the effort put in during running club.  

It is encouraged that students need to run at least 5 laps to get a Milo. Turning up late won’t allow enough time to do 5 laps.
