Over the course of this term, our Physical Education teachers are going to be sharing some short videos on ways to keep yourself fit and healthy.

In the video below, Adam Marks introduces some concepts of how exercise can make us feel better while leading to improved physical wellbeing. This video is a great example of how our staff are now communicating differently with parents and students and outlines some of the approaches that will occur during Physical Education classes in Term 2.

Adam also outlines his call to action for students and parents to share their exercise tips in his classes. This idea is going to be expanded through Hillcrest ConneX over the coming weeks. We are going to run weekly challenges that ask you, our community, to share your home videos and ideas based on specific routines or instructions.

We hope you enjoy the challenges that will take place each week and if you are searching for those particular posts in future, please look for the Physical tag in the Community ConneX section of our website.
