Tuesday 29 May was an action-packed day for our Junior School. Infants (including the Preschool 2-day group!) took part in their annual 'Fun Day' on Wakehurst Oval. All the serious events were hotly contested - the 3-legged race, the sack race, and the particularly challenging egg-and-spoon race. For those who enjoy the short-course track, the 50-metre sprint is a big favourite. There were stickers a-plenty for each competitor and enthusiastic cheering from the spectators. It really was a 'fun' morning!
After lunch our Infants were treated to tabloid-style activities that were designed by former student and science teacher, Jacob Strickling. With a proclivity for pyrotechnics and explosions, Jacob's activities did not disappoint. Many children claimed it was their favourite part of the day; but then again who doesn't love an afternoon involving 15 fidget spinners, nerf guns, shark fishing and parachutes!
Our Primary students certainly didn't miss out on the fun. They rotated through a 40-themed Outer Limits Day. From 40 uses of WD-40 to solving 40 maths puzzles, there was a little bit of 40 for everyone.
After lunch the Primary students were delighted and entertained by the zany humour of Beetroot Productions. If anyone can pull off an interstate flight, a lime green dress, hot pink jacket and fluro-orange hair it is our dearly missed friend, Miss Fruitcake (also known as Fiona Gosling - former staff and parent of Covenant). Everyone left with a smile on their face and bubble mixture in their hair.
We are thankful to God for this place that is Covenant Christian School. Happy 40th Covenant!!
