Learning - Physical Education

 

All primary school students participate in a weekly 60-minute physical education class.

The Physical Education program aims to expose students to a wide variety of sports and activities. 

This is designed to help students develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for confident, lifelong participation in sport and recreation activities. 

It enables students to make responsible decisions about physical activity and to promote their own and others' health and wellbeing.

The school is divided into four factions:  

Green - Banksia
