Gross Motor Ability is a Critical Life Skill

MotorSkillsSmHSPicture: Hayley Solich

Gross Motor skills are important for major body movement such as walking, maintaining balance, coordination, jumping, and reaching.

Gross motor abilities share connections with other physical functions.

A student's ability to maintain upper body support, for example, will affect his ability to write.

Writing is a fine motor skill. Students with poor gross motor development, may have difficulty with activities such as writing, sitting up in an alert position, sitting erect to watch classroom activity, and writing on a blackboard.

Does your child have poor large muscle strength?

Michelle Verster, a very experienced Occupational Therapist in private practice, will be presenting a practical workshop on how you, the parent, can make a considerable difference to your child’s academic success, in order to aid continued success in the classroom. Don’t miss this interactive, practical talk!

The practical demonstration will be held in the school hall on:

Thursday 7 August at 6.30 pm for 7.00 pm.

No Charge but donations appreciated to cover refreshments
