In celebration of World Ocean Day yesterday, we decided to embrace the beautiful Australian beaches and play some friendly (yet competitive) beach games, for our Friday activity!
On World Ocean Day, which is held annually on June 8th, people around the world celebrate and honor our shared ocean, which connects us all. It raises awareness about the importance of the blue ocean and promotes its sustainable use and protection for future generations.
When the sun is shining, and the ocean is calling, there’s no better place to be than the beach. The beach offers a perfect setting for relaxation, swimming and of course, a few friendly yet competitive beach games. Whether you’re enjoying a day out with family or friends, beach games can elevate your experience and create lasting memories. A total of (0) students joined our beach games for a thrilling and entertaining afternoon that made unforgettable seaside memories.
We played volleyball, backyard cricket and some students enjoyed throwing the Frisbee around.
- Beach Volleyball: One of the most popular beach games, beach volleyball, combines athleticism, teamwork, and a whole lot of fun! We set up a net in the sand and divided into two teams of 6 for a energetic match. The soft sand added an extra challenge, requiring quick movements and balance. Beach volleyball kept our students engaged and we all shared endless laughter together!
- Frisbee: A classic game that’s simple yet exhilarating, frisbee is a beach favorite. A couple students grabbed a frisbee and start tossing it around with each other. Frisbee is a game that can be played casually or competitively like Frisbee golf. We stuck to the friendly game as the beach provides an open space, allowing the students to showcase their throwing skills and enjoy the thrill of a perfectly executed catch.
- Beach Cricket: Another favourite Australian game, backyard cricket; except this time, beach cricket! Whilst loosely based upon the game of cricket, many aspects are improvised: the playing ground, the rules, the teams, and the equipment. Quite often there are no teams at all; the players take turns at batting and there is often no emphasis on actually scoring runs. One by one, our students took turns batting, bowling and fielding. It was such a fun game to play all together, and to introduce our students to an iconic Australian game at social gatherings.
Overall, we had such an amazing afternoon at the beach, which was the perfect ending to our school week, and even better start to our weekend. Our beach games made for unforgettable memories under the sun.
