Personal development, health and physical education

Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.

PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.

Sport and Physical Education

Students participate in physical education and sport every week. We have an extensive sport program at school catering for the needs of all our students. We offer a variety of different sports in which all students may participate. The K-2 students learn skills in sports such as basketball, AFL, soccer and gymnastics.

The Year 3-6 students have the opportunity to compete against other schools in an inter-school sport competition known as Primary School Sports Association (PSSA). These team games vary from summer to winter and include rugby league, rugby union, netball, soccer and touch football. Training sessions for these sports are held before school or during the lunch hour. In summer, sport is on Friday mornings and in the winter it is on Friday afternoons.

We also offer non-competitive sporting options for children that are not participating in PSSA competitions. Please see the sports selection policy for more information.
