Physical Education & Sport & Swimming
Physical Education Program
A sequential PE program is provided by a specialist teacher. Students benefit from the ‘Coach in Residence’ program that develops ball skills and hand-eye coordination. The lessons are held in Terms 2 and 3 in preparation for the Athletics Carnival.
Children at all year levels are involved in a wide and varied range of activities during the course of the school year. The school is represented at netball in a Saturday morning competition during winter with training and organisation being undertaken with parental support and assistance. Running club operates, twice a week before or after school during Terms 2 and 3.
After School Sport
Currently the Australian Government funds some After School Sports through its Sporting Schools Program. Activities offered at our School vary from term to term.
In-Term Swimming Lessons
Swimming lessons are arranged for all students and are conducted by fully qualified swimming instructors.
Lessons for Year 6 are held at Sorrento Beach early in first term with PP to Year 5 at Craigie Leisure Centre.
