Gad’s Seniors and Juniors enjoyed learning more about themselves and their classmates at a termly wellbeing event.
The students worked together on a range of team-building workshops, designed to encourage every child to feel valued and a part of the ‘Gad’s family’.
Organised by Maths teacher Miss Rana, the Spirit Wellbeing Day saw children from Years 2-10 take part in Bhangra dancing; theatrical performances, the ‘Gad’s bake-off’ and an art competition, among other physical and mental challenges.
Students agreed that one activity was particularly enjoyable and rewarding, and above all else, humbling…
A blind football tournament was played on the sports field and Miss Rana was very impressed with how the children embraced the game and respected its rules, including one that requests all spectators remain silent, allowing players to hear and locate the ball.
The day ended with an old-school-style sports day, featuring egg-and-spoon, three-legged and sack races and there was plenty of healthy competition between Houses.
Miss Rana said: “We learned a lot about team work and that for Gad’s to be at its best, we all need to be happy and healthy at school.
“Spirit can be defined as one’s true self, which resonates with our school motto and I am proud of the students’ continuing commitment and motivation.”
