Perspective - Teamwork - Zest

Amelia, Gemma, Caspar and Darcy wanted to address both physical and mental health for students at Heathmont College and recognised that exercise can have a positive impact on both. They developed a sporting competition that ran during lunchtimes for 3 weeks, with a specific focus on inclusion. Dodgeball was the chosen sport and was specifically selected as it is suitable for all skill levels. Teams were made up of students across all year levels and culminated in a grand final Teachers vs Students game.
