Playground Leaders in training!

Today at St Joseph's 24 children from our Junior classes were involved in some exciting Playground Leadership training run by our School Games coordinator Nancy Murdoch 

Playground Leaders set up and run simple games for younger children in the school playground during break and lunch times. This is a real opportunity for individuals to take a first step along the leadership ladder and become responsible for developing an important aspect of school life.

The School Council has spent time selecting and purchasing a range of equipment ready to be used and today the children received  a morning session of coaching. The children were put through their paces and were shown how to set up, manage and where needed adapt a range of playground games.

We hope that the introduction of such leaders will ensure that playtime continues to be an enjoyable and stimulating experience for all concerned. Well done to this team of 24 and we look forward to seeing your orange Playground Leadership caps floating around the playground hard at work!!
