These excursions enable the students to experience the recreational/leisure domain of physical activity. This links to Unit 2 AOS 1 of the curriculum in which students develop an understanding of the relationship between physical activity, sport, health and society. Furthermore, ice skating and trampolining help students develop strength, co-ordination and balance. As well, they help achieve the aim of strengthening peer friendships and promoting positive self confidence in a group environment. Once back in the classroom we reflected on how participation in sport and recreation enhances all areas of an individual’s health and wellbeing.
