Kite Flying

Last week 2L & 2D made the most of the wild, windy weather and went out to the oval to fly kites that were kindly donated by Irymple Foot Clinic. For many students, this was the first time they have experienced flying a kite and it proved to be a big hit with everyone. We discovered that flying a kite is not as easy as it seems and the kites sometimes had a mind of their own! When we returned to the classroom we wrote about our experience, sharing our thoughts and feelings. We would like to send a very big THANK YOU to Irymple Foot Clinic. You brought smiles to many students’ faces and they were thrilled to be able to take one home each to enjoy with their family. by Miss Kolpin

“Whoosh! Today was so windy. 2L and 2D got to fly fluro orange kites. The artic wind was soooooo freezing! I was chilled to the bone. Miss Dempsey’s group’s kite only liked one person… Sebastian! I laughed when he got all tangled up in the invisible string! I was so Happy”.  Linkon 2D

“One freezing day we flew kites like a plane doing loop the loops. The kite goes side to side. The wind dances with the kite. The kite tries escaping my beautiful hands but I hold on as the wind tries to pull me. I love amazing kites”.  Josh 2L

“On a freezing morning we went to fly kites outside on the oval. I felt excited at the start but then when we were flying them it got hard. I had so much fun. Abbie got the kite up all the way to the sky and I felt a bit frustrated at the start. Miss Kolpin got the kites from Irymple Foot Clinic. I was in Julie-Anne’s group. It was really windy outside and I was freezing like an ice block. Miss Kolpin’s kite was the highest on the whole oval. When I flew my kite I was frustrated. My face was so red and so, so, so pink. I was devastated that I couldn’t get it up high but I was so fascinated.” Olivia 2L
