The school performs very well in sports and students are keen to participate. We have a specialist Physical Education teacher who co-ordinates the programme including inter-school competitions for the senior students. This includes:
- Athletics Carnival: School faction and inter-school
- Inter-school swimming
- Interschool football, netball and soccer.
- School faction and inter-school Cross country
- Specialist sports clinics
All students are expected to participate in all physical education activities unless injured or an exemption letter is received from parents. Should your child have a particular disability that prevents them from participating, please forward a note of explanation to the school. For long term conditions exemption notes must be reviewed each year.
The school is required to provide 2 hours of active physical exercise each week. This is provided through regular Friday senior sports for students in Years 3-6.
Pre-Primary and Years 1-2 run a separate Sports programme support by the PE teacher with skills lessons.
As part of the school sport programme, all students from P – 6 are expected to participate in 10 lessons of swimming.
This is a ‘user-pay’ programme and children are bussed to Belmont Oasis Pool for the lessons, with Years 2-6 going in Term 1 and Years P-1 in Term 4.
