On Wednesday the 24th February, the year 3/4 Kaurna classes went on an excursion to AFL Max where we participated in the ‘A Day in the Life of an Elite Sportsperson’ session. We enjoyed the various challenges that made up an exciting day of fun.
Braxton Obstacle Course
The obstacle course was all about effort, teamwork, cheering people on, courage, help and making people happy. The obstacles were very interesting and tricky. We had to jump and crawl through without touching the obstacles. It was basically an inside obstacle course and doing it was good for our health.
Rock Climbing - Isla R
Rock climbing was about bravery. Some people may not have gone too high, but they still had a try no matter what. Some people were afraid of heights, but they faced their fears and still had lots of fun.
These are the steps for rock climbing at AFL max:
1. Strap yourself into your harness
2. Tighten the straps
3. Listen to the instructions
4. Find a rock climbing wall that is empty and climb
5. Once you have completed one, you must go on at least one more.
Fake Media Conference - Mase
The Media Conference was a very good experience for all the students because we got to ask the panel questions about themselves. We were some of the people in the audience out of 1.5 million people. The panel got accused of putting unauthorized content on Facebook.
The Aiming Wall
The aiming wall was very tricky but it was fun because we got to practice our throwing and kicking skills. There were footy goals and we got to kick the football. It was really fun. We moved round in groups to practice on different parts of the aiming wall.
Interactive games - Isla T
In the interactive games we got to throw a ball at the screen, it was all about teamwork. We played galactic squares on the wall of the projector. Some people were calling out top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right. Then we did a bunny game with colours boards on them, so all of those games were all about teamwork.
Here are the steps to play galactic squares:
1. Grab a soft ball/doge ball.
2. Start aiming at the squares
3. You have a timer if you don’t get one and it hits the circle one of your lives are gone
Try and win!
