Mark McCabe from the Skip `n Rope company kept us all on our toes last week with his fantastic skipping workshops. Every boy in the school got an opportunity to watch Mark demonstrate some really cool moves with a skipping rope. And then the fun really got started!
Each class took their turn to troop to the hall and practise skipping rope in a variety of fashions. Skipping has terrific benefits...
It was great to witness so many boys make a superb effort to try out different moves with their ropes and to really improve their skipping. Lots of boys also purchased ropes on the day and there has been a huge upsurge in boys skipping out in our yard, so much so that we have allocated sections of our yard just for skipping. Some of the boys have become super speedy and super skilled skippers already!
Great to see!
Thanks to Ms Brennan for organizing this and to Mark McCabe for his superb workshops!
