Staff try to Beat the Bleep
In early February just before mid-term, seven of the teachers tried the bleep test in the gym. The gym was closed off to students to give the teachers some privacy. For the same reason the results below are given in such a way that only the teachers who picked thier ID number, between 1 and 100, will know which result is theirs. The results are given as level.shuttles. The speed for each level is: Level 1: 8 kph, level 2: 9 kph; level 3: 9.5 kph; level 4: 10 kph; level 5: 10.5 kph; level 6: 11 kph; level 7: 11.5 kph; level 8: 12 kph etc. The results for February 2012 were as follows. For more information about the bleep test see Subjects > Junior > Core > PE.
