In Term 3, Foundation students are learning about weather in our Curiosity unit. On Thursday August 10th the Foundation students went on their second excursion for the year to the Obrien Group Ice Skating Arena in Docklands. Dressed accordingly for the icy cold weather, and buzzing with excitement we all set off for a fun filled day. When we arrived at the arena, the students took part in an ice skating lesson followed by an hour of free skating to show off their newly taught skills.
Although some students (and Miss Maher) were found slipping and falling to the ground, every single student got straight back up, brushed themselves off and continued to skate. Their persistent efforts blew everyone away.
After our morning of skating, we all made our way back onto the buses and travelled to Brimbank Park where we enjoyed a picnic and play time on the adventure playground.
The students arrived back tired but very proud of their new experiences and the new skills that they had developed. The students should all be commended for their persistence and resilience that they showed throughout the day.
Here are some accompanying photos to show a snippet of the fun and excitement the day held!
