The Great Easter Key Hunt

Have you very watched the Amazing Race on television?
Well we had our very own amazing race as an Easter activity here at school!!

Students worked in teams of 4 and had to complete challenging activities to receive a clue.

The five activities wereSlide4

  • Easter Bunny Dress Up
  • Holy Week Jigsaw Puzzle Challenge
  • Palm Sunday Dramatization
  • Egg and Spoon Obstacle Course
  • Pull the Egg out of the Sticky Goo

Once the teams had all five clues they assembled the words to create an Easter message, “Alleluia, Jesus is Risen, Alleluia. ”

After this they took a key and tried to open the prize box.
When the key failed to fit the lock the team ran back to the key table and tried another.

And what is in the prize box?
Easter eggs of course!

The SRC enjoyed organizing this special event.

Fantastic One-Time Fun-Time Lunch-Time Activities

The Student Representative Council organised and ran four fantastic activities for our Year 4 students. We hoped to encourage some of our Year 4 students to join the SRC in 2015.

We had 2 lunchtime sessions with over 40 students participating at each session. The SRC designed the activities by looking at data from our SRC Survey. They realized that our students enjoyed competitions, art, sport, technology and cooking. They creatively addressed these needs by organizing 4 ten minute activities through which the Year 4 students rotated over a 40 minute period.

The activities were:

  • A Group LEGO Building Challenge (Students were divided into 4 groups where they had to work as a team to make a robot, vehicle or building)
  • Number Soccer (When your number was called you raced onto the field to score a goal)
  • Lamington Delight (Students dipped their sponge cake into chocolate and rolled it in coconut)
  • Art Competition (Students worked individually to create an innovative SRC Logo)


OK Year 4 students, it’s your turn to comment!

What activity did you like best and why did you enjoy it?

What could we have done differently to make it even better?
