I spent the day speaking and teaching frisbee to 65 students from Kindergarten to Grade 11.
The highlight of the day was when Grade 1 student Joseph threw the disc into the basketball net from the other side of the gym. Other than two students in the junior/senior high class, he was the only one to make the throw!
The core messages I shared today:
- Physical Literacy: The importance of trying/doing multiple sports/activities.
- Kindness: Focus on pro-Kindness rather than anti-Bullying.
- Resiliency/Growth Mindset: Learning from failure, and valuing practice.
- Kindness/Unplugg’d Challenge: building self-disciplines by setting screen time limits.
During the frisbee workshops, the students learned all about throwing & catching, ultimate, disc golf, freestyle, creating throws, and inventing games.
We also played Dodge Disc (with a Dodgebee) and Battle Royale (a frisbee tag game).
Huge thanks to Principal Krumpholz for having me in!
