Middle School Wellbeing Day

  • From the Head of Middle School

What a joy it was to see our Middle School students enjoying the beautiful Spring weather on Friday for our annual Middle School Wellbeing Day. Each year the Middle School Wellbeing Day is different for our Year 7, 8 and 9 students. This year was our ‘off-site’ year. We were so thankful to be able to take 250 students to Belair National Park to enjoy a wide range of planned activities.

Students engaged in activities in three zones located in key areas within the park. Zone One involved a Home Group treasure hunt challenge. Traditional games were played at Zone Two, including egg and spoon race, sack race, tug of war, plus ultimate frisbee. Zone Three had students firing catapults, enjoying the adventure playground, and playing basketball and tennis.

The wellbeing of our Middle School students is a high priority. This is why we set aside a full day to allow them to build relationships, have fun, engage in challenges, laugh, and interact with their teachers in a different environment. Many fun moments were had, and memories created during the day. Scripture encourages us to build one another up and lift our gaze. Hebrews 10:24 says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” Philippians 4:8 encourages us, “...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.” I hope you enjoy these snapshots of our great day.
