Keeping active. While Mitchal and Makayla like their downtime at the end of the school year, don’t be fooled by these two pocket rockets.
Mitchal, 12, who is part of the Playford 10 program at Elizabeth Grove Primary School is looking forward to celebrating the school holidays by doing what he enjoys most.
“My favourite thing to do at the end of year is play video games and tennis on the weekends,” he said.
Mitchal has recently joined the Playford Tennis Club after trying his hand at the game through sporting activities held at Spruance Reserve. “I have been practicing my forehands and backhands,” he said.
Much like her older brother, Makayla, 9, likes to spend her school holidays playing games and participating in little athletics. “I like running, throwing, jumping, exercising,” she said.
The pair also enjoy spending time with family either at home or visiting regional SA.
“Sometimes we go away to Millicent for Christmas to see our Aunt and Uncle or they come here,” they said. Their family tradition is strong with “a group photo by the Christmas tree and presents” every year.
