F.A.D. is coming up! This is one of our favourite days of the school year – a day where our older students select from a range of great activities and create themselves a timetable of a fantastic day of learning and fun. Students, teachers, parents, uncles, aunties, grandparents and friends are invited to plan and run an activity for small groups of students to do on the day. All that’s required is some enthusiasm and a willingness to have a go (as well as a current working with children certificate, if you are an adult)!
Here are just some ideas for activities from previous successful F.A.D.s: football/ hockey/ cricket clinics, cooking, tie-dyeing, drama games, trivia, drawing, karaoke, dance, organ dissection, soccer match/skills games, table tennis tournament, calligraphy, woodwork, crafts, card making, sushi/ pizza/ pasta making, construction, basketball match/drills, puppetry, science experiments, aerobics, cartooning, jewellery making, fishing, learning a new board or card game, how to set up a tent, etc.
If you’re interested in running an activity on the day, please talk to a Grade 5/6 teacher, grab a form and return it to Fiona in Room 10 by Friday 4th May.
If you would like to find out more about F.A.D. before committing, or if you would like some help deciding on an activity, feel free to discuss this with one of the 5/6 teachers or other parents who have been involved in previous years.
