Physical Education

Over the last two weeks, students have finished practising the events they will be participating in at the Athletics carnival and have started their new units of learning.


Prep – working cooperatively with others, taking turns, exploring ways to use different equipment

Grade 1/2 – participating in games and activities to practise the fundamental motor skills of running and dodging

Grades 3 – 6 – Fitness: Students have started practising for the School cross country and will begin fitness testing next week.


Our House Athletics Carnival will be held on Thursday the 23rd of March at Morrison Reserve Athletics Track. It would be great to have all students dressed in house colours on the day. Thank you to the parents who have offered to help. The generosity of your time is greatly appreciated! Just a reminder that all spectators will need to remain on the outside of the track at all times. Only staff and parent helpers will be allowed on the inside of the track.
