Health and Physical Education
The curriculum helps to support students to lay the important early foundations of play and fundamental movement skills. It focuses on the acquisition and refinement of a broad range of movement skills, teaching of resilience, decision making, a stronger sense of self, team work and the acquisition of movement skills to enable lifelong participation in a variety of physical activities.
At Spring Parks Primary School all students participate in a 1hr weekly PE class, while students in Grades 5 and 6 also play competition sports (inter-school sports) against other local Primary Schools on a Friday. All students also participate in Health Education lessons with their classroom teachers.
In addition, to our PE program students are also involved in school programs such as
- Cross Country
- 2 week intensive Swimming Program
- After school sporting programs held at school (Sporting Schools)
- Clinics from outside sporting associations (AFL Football Clinics, Basketball clinics etc).
- Just Get Active
