The school’s weekly swimming program runs in Terms 1 and 4. Prep students only do swimming in term 4. Students are required to bring their togs, swim shirt, towel, plastic bag, swimming cap and goggles (if required) for each lesson. The swimming carnival is held in Term 4 for students in Years 4 to 6.
In term 2, students focus on the development of their athletics skills in preparation for the school athletics carnival. All students participate in a school athletics carnival with separate event days running for the junior and senior school.
PE lessons focus on the Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) approach where students learn a variety of skills through participation in a wide variety of modified games. Lessons focus on maximum involvement, enjoyment and the importance of good sportsmanship. In the early years, particular focus is placed upon the development of fundamental movement skills. Prep students participate in a Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) to help develop their gross motor abilities. In addition, the school is trialling the introduction of CrossFit Kids and the Jump Rope for Heart program.
All students who show interest and/or potential in particular sporting activities will be nominated through the school to participate in Bramble Bay District Trials which may result in their selection in the Bramble Bay District Team. We also support student nominations in Metropolitan Regional teams.
Active Play Breaks
Classes are provided with kits of sporting equipment. This is for students to use during daily break times. It is not necessary for students to bring sporting equipment from home.
