Tai Chi (Years 7 – 12; Open to PLC parents and staff)

Day: Tuesday WK 5-10
Time: 7:00 am (45 mins)
Venue: LH Community Room
Cost: $72

A 6 week program introducing the benefits of Tai Chi and Chi Kung, delivered with effective technique and exploring related cultural activities which enhance the practice.

Health benefits of Tai Chi include:  strengthening and flexibility of joints (ankles, knees, hips, back, shoulders etc) and improved balance.  It is anti-aging – skin improves and practitioners look younger the result of improved blood and respiratory circulation, improved digestion, and sleep.

Tai Chi is a moving meditation.  The calming effect mitigates stress and all of this adds up to improved immunity.  Chi Kung predates Tai Chi and is incorporated into all Tai Chi as it enhances the effectiveness – internal strength, energy and recovery.  These practices support brain growth and function – the ability to learn, memory, perceptions, process and fine/gross motor skills.

Students successfully completing the Keys for Life programme are provided with the opportunity to undertake the Learner’s Permit Test at school. Those who pass are granted exemptions for the Learner’s Permit application process by the WA Department of Transport.

The PLC Keys for Life programme will commence in Term 2. It will run over six Wednesday afternoons, one weekend morning (tbc based on participant’s preferred time and day) and one evening session for students and parents, presented by RAC.

The lessons each week cover various aspects of driving, including, driver responsibilities, road safety facts, how to reduce the risk of an accident, decision making, drugs and alcohol and more. The weekend morning session will be a practical session on the road involving either Mr Sullivan driving the bus and students taking turns spotting hazards from the front seat, or we might be able to organise a driving lesson for each student.
