YEAR 6 PHYSICAL EDUCATION
In PE, our Year 6 classes have been doing a tournament called SEPEP. But what is it? SEPEP is a Sports Education Program run by our Year 6 students.
There are board members who set the fixtures, publicists who have created a website and organised the end of tournament party, scorers who make score cards, equipment managers in charge of the equipment, coaches and first aiders.
We are all placed in teams to compete against each other. Some of the teams are called the Ankle Poppers, Cristian Ronaldo, Inter City, Positive Elixir Trade and the SMC Invincibles!
So, what is the point of this tournament? It teaches students how to play in tournaments, shows initiative in how to organise the event in different ways with minimal assistance, and has helped students improve in soccer. Ultimately it is to encourage teamwork!

WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY
Our Youth Environmental Leaders (YELs) were amongst many students this week who celebrated World Environment Day at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. This fun-filled day raises awareness of global and local environmental issues and the action we can take to help protect our environment.
The YELs participated in three workshops with this year’s World Environment Day theme, being ‘Only One Earth’. The workshops included a wetlands guided trail, a presentation by Sea Shepherd on the incredible work they do to protect our seas, and a living wetlands workshop run by Urrbrae Agricultural High School.
It was a wonderful day connecting with nature and left us feeling inspired and full of lots of new ideas for our own mini wetlands.
