Maitland Area School

Maitland | Yorke Peninsula | South Australia

In Week 5 of this term our SACE Physical Education students participated in an Aquatics program at Port Vincent. 

Year 12 course

As part of their Year 12 course, our Stage 2 Physical Education students combined with students from Minlaton District School and together completed a 3-day sailing course that not only tested them physically but also mentally. 

They were put through a comprehensive program where they were required to learn and apply their skills in rigging, getting away and returning to shore, capsizing, man-overboard recovery, points of sail, tacking, gybing and initiating tactics. 

Testing skills

Although it was a very exhausting and mentally draining three days for our Year 12 students, I was extremely proud of the resilience and teamwork shown as they worked tirelessly through their skills criteria. 

Our Year 11 students were also put through a strenuous 3-day program that allowed them to learn new skills in kayaking, snorkelling and sailing.
