Term Two in Physical Education is off to a flying start! This term is jam packed with many opportunities for students to participate in a variety of sporting activities. Firstly, on Friday 7th May we have a large contingent of Year 3 to 6 students representing the school at District Cross Country.
Foundation-Year two students continue to work on fundamental movement skills with a focus on jumping, hopping, skipping, leaping and balancing while participating in organised games and activities and our PMP program.
I have been able to secure a grant this term through a government initiative called Sporting Schools. Hopefully, with this grant, students across all year levels will be participating in either an AFL or soccer program. These programs will be delivered by school staff and/or possibly outside coaches (dependant on availability). These grants also allow me to purchase new equipment appropriate to running these programs.
Year 5/6 Inter-school sport is happening again this term. The sports on offer have changed to AFL Football, Netball, and Soccer. This gives the students an opportunity to try out and develop skills in a variety of popular sports. The Inter-School sport for us this term starts on 30th April and is weather permitting. There will be three sessions played, both away and at home. Coming up later this term, will also be a Lightning Premiership Day for 5/6 students.
We are looking forward to seeing lots of happy and active students again throughout the term!
