HPE Week Highlights

A.B. Paterson College staff and students got the blood pumping right across ACHPER HPE Week, with a busy schedule of morning tea and lunchtime activities in both our Senior and Junior Schools.

Head of HPE, Steve Mikael says, “HPE Week is a reminder of the importance of physical activity for better overall physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.”

Thank you also to Sharon and Peter Hannan from Aussie Aths for being a part of the week. Sharon coached Sally Pearson to a 100m Hurdles gold medal at the 2012 Olympics. The couple has a wealth of knowledge and were more than happy to share that with our eager Junior School students. It is not every day you get the opportunity to train with the former coach of an Olympic Champion!

Thank you to our energetic staff who led by example and were in the thick of the action during obstacle course, aerobics, badminton, table tennis, volleyball, water polo, skipping and dancing challenges!
