ART & MUSIC VISIT TO CARINYA NURSING HOME
Year 11 & 12 Art students and Year 10 Music students took their talents to the local community in Week 9 with a visit to Carinya nursing home in Atherton. After an acknowledgement of country by MSB student Kathy Richardson, the Art students talked confidently about their work, displayed around the room. The Carinya residents were a great audience and both students and residents enjoyed talking to each other at a shared morning tea. Year 10 Music students then provided more entertainment with a variety of songs and solo performances. Thanks to the managers of Carinya for giving us this opportunity and the Arts faculty staff for their organisation.

YEAR 9 SPORT & RECREATION CROSS FIT EXCURSION
During semester 1, the year 9 Sport & Recreation class have been learning how to create fitness activities as well as umpiring techniques. To develop their knowledge further they have been attending a weekly session at Cross Fit Atherton. Within these sessions students have learnt the importance of a warm up and cool down, communication with clients, the importance of healthy eating and much more.
The sessions also provided students with the opportunity to use equipment that they are not regularly exposed to. As a result of this students enhanced their technique within the gym and developed their ability to make fitness sessions that are fun, engaging and worthwhile.
Each week students got to participate in a team workout. We regularly had team Miss Potts vs Mr Mawdsley and this resulted in a high paced competition. Within the team challenges students learnt how to stay focused, solve problems, but most of all how to support one and other to finish the tasks.
We would like to thank Coach Tommy for accommodating us. Additionally, I congratulate the Grade 9 Sport & Recreation class for taking on the challenge and representing MSB in a positive manner. Well done!
