Physical Education

Cross Country 2019

Knowledge and skills in this area are developed through play, games, modified  sports, gymnastics and movement/spatial awareness

During these activities the emphasis is on skill acquisition and development, participation for all, the development of healthy attitudes towards being active and an enjoyment of physical activity.

Each child at Deepdene Primary School participates in a Physical Education session of 50 minutes per week. Students in Level Foundation to 2 take part in a two week swimming program every year.

All children in Level 3 to 6 participate in our House Cross Country Day during Term Two, our House Athletics Day during Term Three, and the House Swimming Sports carnival in Term Four. There is also a special 

Sports Day during Term Four for Foundation, Level 1 and 2 children, in which they participate in Tabloid Sports.

Students in Level 5 and 6 develop and refine their skills through

 match play with the opportunity to participate in Interschool Sports

 on Fridays during Term 1 and 2. They compete in a range of sports against other sch

ools in the local district. 


There is also a wide variety of ways for your child to become involved in other interest based activities such as soccer or basketball. Several teams practice in the school grounds after school and these teams are assisted by parent coaches.
