Fuse Cup coming soon

Joshua Aghion – Co-ordinator of Innovation (K-6)

Sign up now for eSports at Emanuel

The Fuse Cup is coming to Emanuel School in Term 3. The Fuse Cup is a nationwide network of schools connected in providing young students with an opportunity to participate in a safe, supportive and structured international esports competition while developing positive gaming behaviours and digital wellbeing.

An after-school activity will be run on Thursday afternoon, Term 3 from 3.30 pm – 4.45 pm in the Imaginarium and Design Lab (Level 1 of the Innovation Centre). Please note there is no cost involved in the club. Students will rotate through different games and learn about sportsmanship, resilience and online safety. There will be an opportunity if families are happy, for students to bring in their own Nintendo Switch consoles.

Students will be playing on Nintendo Switch consoles with the three competitive games, Mario Kart, Just Dance and Rocket League, as well as other non-violent games to be decided on as a group. 

The teams to represent Emanuel School at the Fuse Cup will be picked from the after-school activity group. We are looking for eight students from Primary (Years 5 and 6) and eight students from Secondary (Years 7 and 8). 

To show interest and apply to join the afternoon club, please visit the sign up link here. The form will be open until Tuesday 21 June at 6.00 pm. At that time, we will be randomly selecting the students from Primary and Secondary who can join the group. Those students who are unsuccessful will be taken note of and have an extra chance of being selected next time. We will notify parents of who made the club by the end of Week 9 by email. 

We hope that eSports is going to be a successful and enriching experience for our students.
