Students from Prep to Grade 6 at Mernda Park will be participating in a unit called "START UP." This is an acronym for the qualities, traits and characteristics that we would like all students to learn, perform and practise during Physical Education sessions. The acronym stands for: Sport: playing and learning through games, activity and skill practise Teamwork: playing and working in pairs, groups or teams Attitude: learning and developing strategies for keeping a positive mind set Respect: saying and showing respect for all things and people Trial & Error: learning, teaching and practising persistence Understanding: putting ourselves in other people's shoes Positivity: turning negatives into positives - "I can't do it!" into "I can't do it yet." Students will have one focus per week and work on these to help their understanding of the expectations for "What makes a Sports Superstar?"
