On Wednesday, the 11th of September, all Senior School students participated in a Sports Day that centred around the theme of ‘outdoor life’. Our Year 9 students were based out in the beautiful surrounds of Vaxholm, where they participated in some orienteering and also enjoyed a canoeing session. Year 8 students went out to Skavlöten where, in addition to some orienteering, they also participated in some games that utilised the outdoor environment. The Year 7’s combined some nature activities with some ‘City Orienteering’ around Gamla Stan.
The day, which provided some great teaching and learning opportunities, aimed to engage students in nature with the hope that they will continue to pursue recreational activities in this environment throughout their life. An added benefit was that it gave all classes the chance to strengthen relationships within the class at the beginning of the school year. The teachers certainly enjoyed working with the students on this day and we hope a lot of fun was had by all!
