VET Sport & Rec coach St Bernard’s kids

VETSandP1Galen’s Year 10 VET Sport & Recreation students have been hard at work throughout Term 1 & 2 planning and conducting a 6-week program with St Bernard’s Primary school Grade 3 and 4 students.

The coaching clinics facilitated by Galen’s Year 10s have given them valuable insight into the different ways children learn, being able to modify activities to cater for different skill levels and being flexible enough to change games to suit weather, space or availability. The Year 10 student leaders have also built special relationships with their Primary School students and developed their own communication skills and confidence in coaching physical activity sessions.
