The students vs teachers games have been a popular event at Fairvale, held by the Student Representative Council fortnightly. This year, we’ve held three successful games so far, with the sports being basketball, volleyball and oz-tag.
This year, the SRC had introduced some changes to the recruitment process. At the volleyball team, there were two columns on the recruitment list, one for male and the other for female. This is to encourage female to participate in sport, instead of having a predominately male team. For the last game, Oz tag, however, the process was vastly changed with the introduction of the SRC mailbox, which required students to write their name on a piece of paper and slipped it in the box. Then the names of players would be picked randomly by the SRC.
Unfortunately, due to stormy weather, the oz-tag game was cancelled twice. After some consideration, the SRC decided to held the game once term 3 commenced. Like the previous two games, it was a huge success. Both sides were trying their very best, which resulted in a tie at the end.
Overall, the students enjoyed these games immensely, displayed great sportsmanship and even volunteered to play on the teachers’ team when there weren’t enough teachers. In the end, it wasn’t about the result, but the fun that came with it.
