Grade 7 Orientation

February 4, 2018

The Grade 7s eagerly made their way to the Hurdian sports’ fields on Thursday 25 January, not knowing what to expect.  They were split into teams and given nine tasks to complete together.  These tasks ranged from removing “toxic water” from a bucket inside a circle using only ropes to having the team’s legs tied together and having to move through a course of hoola hoops with only two feet inside them at a time!  There were marble races in sand pits, marbles balancing in spoon challenges, using ribbon to write as a team and recalling cell numbers from all over the grounds, to name a few. The highlight was watching a video on how geese work as a team and then having to reenact the scenes themselves, geese honks and all!  The ice-creams were a fantastic relief during the hot morning, as well as the cooldrinks.  After all the hard work, the Grade 7s moved to the school pool for lunch and a well deserved swim before heading home after a busy day at school.
