The children from second-sixth class have been learning the skills of volleyball over the past seven weeks under the guidance of Tom Landers from the Newbridge Volleyball Club. Over the past few weeks the children have learned lots of different techniques, including the overhand catch, the correct serving technique and were introduced to the game of Catch and Throw Volleyball.
Today, Tom organised a Volleyball Tournament for the children, complete with medals for the winners and runners up. The classes were split into teams of four and the whole school was on hand to watch the highly competitive semi-finals and finals. A wonderful day was had by all and the teachers were very impressed by the skills on display.
