Our Early Education Centre held a ‘Mini Commonwealth Games’ over the Term 1 break. They opened the Games with a torch ceremony, followed by an Acknowledgment of Country, and the Australian national anthem. Once the Games were opened, the children participated a variety of events including bike races, hurdles, javelin (with pool noodles), gymnastics, soccer, long jump and bean bag shot put.
After a quick ice-block break, the children all participated in running races and even cheered on their teachers and parents as they participated in a sack race. To finish the day the children were all presented with their very own medal. We were so proud of them as they displayed sportsmanship and willingness to try new things.
