The primary PE Program is focused on developing skills for locomotors and non-locomotors movements, and acquiring manipulative skills for the use of small and large equipment. Children develop physical literacy through a variety of movement experiences including gymnastics, folk dancing, parachute activities, fitness, minor games and relays. As the Program advances from Kindergarten to Grade 3, more emphasis is placed on playing modified team games using the fundamental skills learned
Regular participation in sport and physical activity is associated with a range of physical and mental health benefits both in childhood and adulthood. Active children generally become healthy adults and schools play a key role in contributing to that outcome.
Sport is a compulsory and valued part of the curriculum and is an integral part of a child’s development. School Sport programs include inter and intra-school competitive sport, outdoor recreational or adventure sports, fitness, sport development and physical recreation activities.
