Sport & Exercise
Shayla is really enjoying her Sport & Exercise class where she puts the theory of exercise she has learnt into action. She says the course is packed with action and variety and is never boring as it relates to future job opportunities in the health and fitness area. Shayla is considering a future career as either a personal trainer or a physiotherapist and she says that the course is “real life, focused learning.”
Course highlights for Shayla were the day the class spent paddle boarding out to Haulashore Island and learning about biomechanics and how different groups of muscles within the body work.
Shayla would recommend the course to students who have an interest in sports and a healthy lifestyle. She enjoys interacting with the fulltime NMIT students in the Diploma course. “We have the chance to learn from watching the older students.”
Although she attends Trades Academy every Friday, Shayla manages to keeps up to date with her other school work with the support of her teachers at Nayland and Google Classroom.
