A very sporty day!


​On Tuesday May 14th we had a very sporty day at HBSS!
In the morning, Scott from the NRL came to the school to teach the students some Rugby League skills. The students gathered in the undercover area and spent the morning practising passing, throwing and catching the football. They learned how to handpass the ball and competed in relay races.  At the end of the session each student received a poster of their favourite rugby team.
After morning tea we had Maryborough Brothers Rugby League under 13’s Team visit the school.

Our visitors arranged  various games such as T-Ball, soccer, cricket and hockey for our students to participate in. The young    At lunchtime the brothers team provided a sausage sizzle which we all enjoyed.  Some very lucky students were presented with a rugby ball for trying their best during the sports activities and they gave us a ball for everyone in the school to practise the skills they had learnt during the day.

This is what the students from Group 3 liked about the NRL activity day
Aaron liked playing cricket and T – ball because they are his favourite games.
Alexis liked playing T – ball because she liked hitting the ball far away.
Bonnie liked playing hockey especially when she was trying to get the ball off Aaron.
Brittney liked playing bocce she wanted to try and throw her ball closest to the jack.
Daniel liked it when he received a football, then he got his ball signed by the MRL Brothers. 

Then they gave a present for each of our students. As you can see it was a fabulous day.

The surprises didn't stop there because the next day one of the rugby players returned to our school to give JT his rugby shirt, JT was so surprised he was almost speechless!

Brothers rugby players were fantastic in guiding and teaching our students how to play the various games and we owe them and their coaches and the organisers of this wonderful event a huge thank you for such a successful and enjoyable day!
Hervey Bay Special School staff didn't realise until later that the visit from Maryborough Brothers Rugby League Club was the beginning of a fund raising project to fundraise for us and Maryborough Special School throughout the season!
