Students from Prep to Year 12 are provided with the opportunity to participate in a variety of sporting activities through the College curriculum.
Our Junior College Physical Education lessons focus around improving body and spatial awareness through actively learning new skills and movement sequences while having fun and increasing fitness.
Regular participation in physical activity can improve movement capacities, personal development and health and wellbeing.
The lessons include small and whole group games that focus on following instructions and rules while developing teamwork and cooperation within groups.
Interactions within lessons involve the students effectively communicating and respecting differences in order to establish positive relationships with their peers and to be able to work well with others.
