Physical Education

Nick Lowrie

Each week, students further develop fundamental motor skills, a sense of teamwork, enjoyment in physical activity and a respect for umpires and officials during specialist Physical Education sessions. In Foundation, this is known as the Perceptual Motor Program (PMP).


The sequential program from Foundation to Level 6 includes ball handling skills, gymnastics, a comprehensive two-week swimming program at the GESAC indoor-heated pool, athletics, and major and minor games.


In Levels 3/4, students engage in an extra hour of organised sport, which teaches children the rules and skills involved in major games such as touch football, baseball, circle-ball, netball, basketball and volleyball. This prepares students for Level 5/6 where the students participate in an inter-school sport competition.

In Term 4, Level 4 and 5 students engage in Bike Education, which focuses on safety and the skills required when handling a bike in different situations and conditions. Athletics and swimming competitions/trials are held each year, with children proudly representing the school, district and zone at different levels of the competition.
