Winter Moves giving students a well deserved study break

From Strike bowling to indoor rock climbing, Social Sport - Winter Moves saw students take a much-needed break from their studies.

In conjuction with RMIT Sport, Winter Moves gave students the chance to meet new people and connect with the wider RMIT community.

Students embarked on a sports museum tour at the iconic MCG, took on each other in a game of bowling and laser tag, battle the cold at the O’Brien Ice Skating arena and experience a unique 18 holes of Holey Moley mini golf.

Sitting right on the doorstep of RMIT’s City campus, students also embraced Hardrock Climbing which was a big hit for beginners and adrenaline junkies alike.

English nursing student Charlie Derwent-Smith, who is at RMIT on a Study Aboard program, said she decided to jump at the opportunity to take a break from her studies and try indoor rock climbing for the first time

“My friend asked me to join around thirty minutes ago!,” she said.

I think it’s really good to get away from the computer for a bit and take the chance to socialise and meet new people.

International exchange students Lily, Nash and Su-Han enjoyed trying something new.

"We are exchange students and only arrived three weeks ago, so it's really nice to have the opportunity to do things we wouldn't normally do, like rock climbing!"

Students bowling and playing mini golf Student's enjoyed bowling and mini golf as part of Winter Moves.
