Tennis in Sport
Last week we concluded our 4-week tennis program in sport with Inspire Tennis. Coaches Matthew, Eddie and Jason were a huge hit with all the students.
It was great to see so much engagement, enjoyment and development of skills over the 4 weeks.
It was also a huge privilege to be provided with the sporting schools grant in order to purchase the tennis equipment and have the lessons provided – as it was so successful, we will aim to provide a similar program this time next year. We will also now be able to bring out tennis more often throughout the year at St Thomas as we now have the gear!
If your child has shown a new-found interest in tennis, the guys at Inspire Tennis would love to help you out (see flyer at the end of the newsletter). They offer holiday programs and weekly tennis lessons (for kids and adults) – a great way to use your Active kids vouchers of you haven’t already.
Students will now move into learning some athletics skills in sport in preparation for our athletics carnival in week 1 next term!
