We have finished the Term with our Responsibility and Empathy values. Students have worked hard to recognise, discuss and consider why people need to be responsible and the consequences of our actions in games, activities and sports. With the main focus on the Ramon Lewis rights we all have a communal responsibility to allow others to learn everyday, students were able to explain a great deal of how their actions effected others including themselves. Empathy lessons enabled students to "step into someone else's shoes." Through an array of activities, students from Foundation to Grade 6 were able to display empathy in a variety of ways, while learning through movement and access with disability games, sport and recreational activities. The light bulb moments that these students experienced across these activities has been enormous for their personal and social learning throughout Physical Education. These CARE values have been vital in setting the standard and providing the framework for the rules for PE and Specialist programs. I have been blown away with the learning that has taken place across our DARE TO CARE Term 1 and our first term back to school in a while. So your next challenge...I DARE YOU TO CARE not only in PE, but wherever you go as you demonstrate COLLABORATION, ACHIEVEMENT, RESPONSIBILITY AND EMPATHY, the places that will take you.
Stay safe and happy holidays!
