Latest from Year 3
As part of their After School Sport program, Year 3 and 4 students have begun the exciting Sandringham Yacht Club sailing program for Term 4. The students are involved in the ‘Tackers’ program and are half way through the four sessions they will participate in.
We were blessed with perfect weather conditions for our first session. The students eagerly arrived and were fitted with life jackets. After learning about the important parts of the boat that require them to navigate their vessel, they were off! The year 3’s worked co-operatively in pairs to steer their boats in the bay. All students had the opportunity to swap between navigating the tiller and manning the sail. The qualified instructors guided them from an inflatable motorised rescue boat. Even the ride in the rescue boat was an awesome experience.
Reluctantly the students returned to shore to their awaiting parents. A fun time had by all, with an eagerness to continue the programme.
