Junior School

Physical Education lessons are with a specialist teacher and are supplemented by classroom teachers with additional movement/fitness sessions each week. Our program for students in Kindergarten to Year 3 aims to highlight the enjoyment of participation in physical activity while learning fundamental movement skills through structured movement activities. Students in Year 4, 5 and 6 are taught the skills needed for confident participation in sport and recreational activities. Students learn to make responsible decisions about physical activity and to promote their own health and wellbeing.

Throughout the year, in a two-week block, students in Pre-Primary to Year 6 attend daily swimming lessons with qualified instructors.
