The Prime Minister’s Challenge

The London, 2012, Olympic Games will begin early next term.

MLY enjoy being active and we love to accept a challenge.

MrsLynch has nominated MLY to participate in The Prime Minister’s Challenge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Prime Minister, Ms Julia Gillard, launched the challenge to encourage all children to become active in their daily lives.

It is easy for our class to be active participants because running, playing, jumping, walking, exercising are things we love to do.

How the Challenge works

The process is simple. Once registered, all children have to do is:

  • Play sport or take part in activities at school, home, as part of their sporting group, or all three ways, each week of the Challenge. Children are encouraged to participate within their ability levels to ensure a safe and fun sporting experience;
  • Accumulate points by recording the type of sport played and the amount of time spent playing sport on the Prime Minister’s Olympic Challenge website;
  • Watch these points grow during the Challenge; and
  • Receive either a gold, silver, bronze or participation certificate based on how many points have been accumulated across the Challenge.
  • How are points calculated?

    Each eligible participant will earn either a gold, silver, bronze or participation certificate based on their level of participation**:

    • To be awarded a gold certificate, children need to participate in an average of 60 minutes of sport each day and try at least 15 different sports during the Challenge.
    • To be awarded a silver certificate, children need to participate in an average of 45 minutes of sport each day and try at least 10 different sports during the Challenge.
    • To be awarded a bronze certificate, children need to participate in an average of 30 minutes of sport each day and try at least 5 different sports during the Challenge.
    • To be awarded a participation certificate, children need to participate in a minimum of 10 hours of sport during the Challenge.

    Good Luck everyone!

Two weeks ago the whole school partcipated in Jump Rope For Heart. The skipping ropes are still popular in the play ground.

Last week MLY played a game of football against MNO. There was a competitive atmosphere as we had an umpire (Mr Skewes) and a scorer.

MNO were the winners but both teams won sportsmanship awards. The team spirit, encouragement from team mates and sportsmanlike behaviour was a very high standard.

Our Friday Assembly Items

Every Friday LLPS assemble together in our lovely, new gymnasium. We have the regular presentations such as our YCDI awards. Students receive a YCDI certificate if they have shown confidence, organisation, persistence, getting along behaviour or resilience. Then we have an award from our Principal, Mr Creece. Teachers choose a student who has achieved well in their learning. The parents usually come to assembly just in case their child goes out to the front for an award. It is a proud moment. We also have the JSC White Hand Award for keeping the school yard tidy.
Sometimes we have student presentations.
This one is the Preps saying the alphabet. They are very clever Preps!

This one is the Middles doing an Energy Squad presentation to the school.

This one is after our Jump Rope for Heart. The Skippers practised a routine.
