Joondalup Times - - STREET WATCH -

DUNCRAIG stu­dents played bub­ble soc­cer, chal­lenged teach­ers and showed their tal­ents at a re­cent three-day healthy liv­ing fes­ti­val.

The Alive Fes­ti­val at Duncraig Se­nior High School en­cour­aged stu­dents and staff to im­prove their men­tal, phys­i­cal and so­cial health.

Ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded an in­flat­able ob­sta­cle course, archery tag, chill zone with mind­ful­ness ac­tiv­i­ties, ex­tended re­cess and lunch breaks, health expo and staff ver­sus stu­dent tour­na­ments.

There were also mo­ti­va­tional talks and per­for­mances by lo­cal mu­si­cian Kurt Car­rera and band The Faux.

School chap­lain Jay­den Brand or­gan­ised the event, which has been run­ning for 12 years. “It’s a great opportunity for the whole school com­mu­nity, staff and stu­dents to have a bit of fun, be en­cour­aged after a full se­mes­ter, for pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships to be con­tin­u­ally es­tab­lished and to hit the se­cond half of the year with a bit of fresh air,” he said.

Duncraig SHS stu­dents take part in ac­tiv­i­ties for the Alive Fes­ti­val.
