Physical & Outdoor Education


We provide opportunities for children to develop a variety of personal, social and physical skills through our Physical Education and Outdoor Education programs.

 

Physical Education Program
Our Physical Education Program encompasses the areas of body co-ordination, endurance, ball skills, athletics, as well as major and minor ball games.  These facets are designed to build up body strength, mobility, flexibility and fundamental skills.  It is therefore essential that children be suitably dressed to enable maximum participation and benefit. 

The school provides opportunities for sporting excellence with representative teams competing in many sporting areas.
