The year 9A/B girls were fortunate to experience Wushu for two of their recent Physical Education lessons. Wushu means “Chinese martial arts” and it is used for self-discipline of the body and mind. The important elements include flexibility, speed, coordination, presentation and precision. Wushu has a lot of benefits such as getting stronger physically, and mentally and emotionally. Long term, social and spiritual aspects of well-being is enhanced because Wushu is a lifelong art.
Students were filmed as part of a promotional video that will be used in China. The Health and Physical Education department would like to acknowledge and thank the Asia New Zealand Foundation #asianz who funded the classes.
