Year 7 Activity Day brings community together (Issue 12 2017)
Written on the 17 August 2017
On Wednesday 9 August we saw community in action at Sacred Heart College Middle School as students gathered from Marymount, the Senior School and the Middle School for a Year 7 Activity Day. The Year 9 Leaders from both Marymount and the Middle School developed this idea and combined to organise this day for the Year 7 students from both campuses.
The day started with much excitement and anticipation as Maddy Forde and a group of REMAR students from the Senior School started with an 'Introduction to Marist', followed by running a series of fun 'getting to know you' activities. This had the boys and girls up and moving around, interacting and getting to know each other. With this, there was definitely a buzz in the air and lots of laughter.
After recess, the Year 9 leaders took charge. They organised and ran a series of activities for the Year 7 students which lasted the rest of the day, including: Kahoot, Dodge Ball, Tug of War, an Amazing Race and soccer. The day was a great success and the students had lots of fun, while developing friendships and building on the sense of community. The Year 9 students and the students from REMAR need to be commended on delivering such a successful day. Well done to all!
