Promote Participation, Celebrate Competition

Students in the primary years (Prep to Year 6) are engaged in a developmentally appropriate Physical Education Program run by a Specialist PE teacher for one hour a week.

“We strongly acknowledge the fact that regular, vigorous physical activity makes a positive contribution to children’s health.”

We offer a PE program which caters for their immediate physical development needs, while encouraging them to be physically active for life.

Our well organised PE program is designed to help children

– become fitter and healthier
– develop their natural tendency to play and explore
– develop movement competence and confidence
– refine the skills of body management and control, hand-eye and foot-eye coordination
– develop skills related to the use of equipment and apparatus through participation in pleasurable games and pastimes
– learn to move rhythmically and offer scope to express ideas and feelings
– improve self-confidence and social competence through successful involvement with peers, parents and teachers
–  become more able to cope with stress and anxiety
– overcome sexual stereotyping

Our program is designed to provide experiences which reflect:

  • Variety, Vigour, Vitality
  • Confidence and character building
  • Challenge
  • Achievement
  • Enjoyable hard work and play
  • Co-operation and competition
  • Individual and group involvement
