TriSkills is really fun because we get to do a variety of different activities like gymnastics and trampolining. In gymnastics, students get to perform handstands, balancing, mini trampolines, and swinging on bars. When they did trampolining they got to do spinning, moving into shapes, rotations, etc.
Everyone loved doing TriSkills!

It’s a great opportunity to have instructors Kim and Megan coach us. The instructors made it very fun for everyone. We’ve learnt lots of things already! Trampolining involves performing shapes and rotations. In gymnastics, students have been doing balance, rotations, shapes, and landings.

“It’s really fun doing all the activities while learning as well”Katie (Miss Eldridge’s class)

“The trampolines are really fun!”Nathan (Miss Eldridge’s class)

“I love going on all the gymnastics equipment”Harry (Miss Ehlers’ class)

“Doing the handstands was my favourite part”Kayla (Miss Ehlers’ class)
