Third, fourth and fifth graders participated in the globally recognized game of golf as a module in their physical education class. Golf professional Mr. Jeff Collins from Ash Brook golf course visited Woodbrook School and demonstrated the proper swing techniques. Golf is a sport that enhances our hand-eye coordinated, balance, and strength. All children had a blast getting the opportunity to swing the golf club! We are very thankful that Mr. Collins was able to come to our school and help our students learn a game that they can play for the rest of their lives.
