High­light of the year

The Tatura Guardian - - People - By Madeleine Cac­cian­iga

Tatura Pri­mary School’s Leisure and Recre­ational Pur­suits pro­gram kicked off on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 23 giv­ing years 3 to 6 stu­dents the choice of 11 ac­tiv­i­ties to par­tic­i­pate in for the af­ter­noon.

Be­com­ing a tra­di­tion for the school, prin­ci­pal Su­sanne Gill said the par­ents and stu­dents looked for­ward to ‘‘LARP’’.

She said stu­dents could choose from a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing bad­minton, ta­ble ten­nis, cook­ing or boot camp.

‘‘We’ve got a real range which in­cludes craft, in­door ac­tiv­i­ties and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties, so we’ve got some chil­dren do­ing Christ­mas craft, we’ve got some do­ing a writ­ing work­shop, we’ve got origami and then the other ac­tiv­i­ties that are off site are ten­nis, golf, bowls and fish­ing,’’ Ms Gill said.

The pro­gram runs for three weeks for an hour and a half each Fri­day.

Ms Gill said chil­dren would be ex­pe­ri­enc­ing some of the ac­tiv­i­ties for the first time.

‘‘I think for a lot of them the golf would be pretty new and fish­ing, some of them have got all the gear and for oth­ers it’s for the first time,’’ she said.

Tatura Pri­mary School stu­dents re­fer to LARP as the ‘‘high­light of the year’’.
