The Obstacle-A-Thon 2016

As one of our fundraisers this year, our school held an Obstacle-A-Thon on Friday the 23rd of September. Our time was from 11:15am – 12:45pm.

Each class had 8 minutes to complete each station that was set up on the oval. The stations were:

  1. Inflatable Obstacle Course
  2. Basketball Rings
  3. Mini Trampoline
  4. Hurdle Run, Soccer Weave
  5. Tennis Lacrosse
  6. Lava Island
  7. Cup Stacking
  8. Swordfish
  9. Water Bucket Relay
  10. Hoops

We started at the Tennis Lacrosse and finished at the Basketball Rings. Unfortunately we ran out of time to complete the last 2 activities but we had a lot of fun learning some new games and working together as a team.

Check out some videos and photos that one of our classmates took on the day!

A lot of us completed a sponsor sheet where we collected as many sponsors as possible. Our sponsors then gave us donations or a pledge per activity.

The money raised will be used to refurnish the Library to make it a more flexible learning area for all the students in the school. We have been lucky to have some of the furniture we are able to buy on loan so we can test out what works and fits in with our school.

  1. dear miss Baldwin,
    unfortunately I was sick on the Obstacle-A-Thon day and I was really looking forward to it! ;(
    But from the pictures and videos it looked like a lot of fun!

  2. Hello Mrs Baldwin

    I most enjoyed the bouncy castle and the cup stacking as they were hard to do and fun.
    If I could make my own obstacle it would be most words written down in a miniute.
    I would buy the seats and tables.

    I enjoyed working with Steven the most because he makes funny but good voices for each character.

    The skills I have learnt using iMovie are to do your best, put lots of sound affects and that you need a transition after every scene.

    It’s important when reading aloud to people to not get nervous or laugh because you don’t have a second chance in front of a crowd.

  7. Dear Mrs Baldwin,

    what I enjoyed most about the obstacle-a-thon was probably the inflatable castle and having to vs someone it was really exciting and I came first all the time that I vs someone.

    A station that I would organise or design for the obstacle-a-thon would be a clothes relay while dancing because it would be silly and a fun thing to do and I think people would really enjoy it.

    I would make a sack race because it would be fun to fall over.

    I would like to have the flower cushions using the money that our school raises because they are comfy.

    Kind Regards Alicia

  14. Dear Ms Baldwin,

    The thing I enjoyed the most about the obstacle-athon was getting to jump on the jumpy castle & playing the noodle game because the jumpy castle we got to racer friends & the noodle game because we got to be the person that helps other people when they have to bob down because they got hit below the waist.

    A nation I would design for the obstacle-a-thon would be where were you have to throw the ball & hit the blue target and if you miss & the person behind you hit it you would be out.

    The furniture I would like to purchase would be the chairs that are shaped like a flower because they are really comfortable & they are able to split apart if you want to sit somewhere else with the seats.
