8.4F's Road to Glory

Rafael Nadal's words of wisdom could not be truer; "The glory is not winning here or winning there. The glory is enjoying practising, enjoy every day, enjoying to work hard, trying to be a better player than before."

This term in Physical Education, the stars of 8.4F are enjoying their road to glory, developing their skills, strategies and tactics in Tennis. Through a variety of game based activities, students are not only trying to become better players, but also better communicators. From providing feedback to their peers on their technique, to communicating on the court with their partners during game play; boys are developing and putting their decision making and communication skills to the test. Part of becoming a better player is learning how to handle close calls on the court. With no third umpire technology available, students have to communicate and collaborate effectively with their peers to reach a decision. The values that guide these decisions include integrity, respect and honesty; the values of a true sportsman.
