GOOD Shepherd Catholic School students busted out their athletic skills at the ninja warrior obstacle course at Russell Street Park in Morley.

Students from the Lockridge school visited the park, which won a 2018 Children’s Environment and Health Local Government Policy Awards on August 2, for the first time this morning.

Principal Lisa Deans said the visit was inspired by physical education teacher Oliver Bratchford’s own ninja circuit set-up at the school.

“When this park opened, it was a great opportunity to bring the children down to experience the park,” she said.

“We are actually even getting the guys who put in the equipment at the school to look at putting some things at our school so we can continue running the program.

“We are planning to do it twice this term to see how popular it is and obviously work with the timeframe to get to school.

“It is a great use of space that has not been used before.”
