Jump Rope for Heart Day Was a HUGE Success

posted in: Home Page News | 0

Thank you, Ms. McColl and Ms. Graham, for an absolutely outstanding day last Friday, May 12th.  Students in grades 5 to 8 participated in the Jump Rope for Heart Day.  Along with the opportunity to raise money for a great charity, students had the chance to be physically active for much of the day.

 

During Blocks 1 and 2 students (in teams they created themselves for the day) participated in volleyball and basketball games.  Teams played a number of games against different teams over the course of this time.  3 volleyball courts were constantly running inside and 2 basketball courts were constantly running outside.  During Block 3 students then participated in a large inside dodgeball game.

 

To say that the day was a success would be an understatement!  Student behaviour was great, the smiles on faces were large and students had the chance to burn off some energy as we head into the final stretch of the school year.

 

At the day’s end, both Ms. McColl and Ms. Graham told students that they don’t mind the time, effort and energy put into a day like this – when students participated in the way that they did.  Be proud of your students, DGH community!

 

Thank you to the staff who organizing and supervised the day’s activities – your efforts are appreciated.

 

A number of photos from the day have been posted to the school’s Facebook page. You will probably notice that it was also a Hawaiian Spirit Day – which explains the large number of hula skirts being worn!!!
