St Mary's Catholic School

Physical Education

Every Tuesday, all students participate in one-hour PE lessons with our specialist teacher, Mrs Antonio.

Fundamental Motor Skills, such as throwing, catching, kicking and striking, are taught in Prep and further developed in Years 1 to 3. These are then applied in a range of different sports, such as netball, football, soccer, tennis, touch and cricket, in Years 4 to 6.

All students learn track and field techniques in preparation for the Athletics carnival and have swimming lessons in Term 4. Students also participate in another hour of Sport with their class teacher during the rest of the week.

On a biannual basis, we outsource specialist Dance or Gymnastics instructors who deliver lessons to all students, generally in Term 3.

Every child has the opportunity to take part in the school's Athletics Carnival in Term 2 and also the Swimming Carnival in Term 4.

A sport option is also often offered during Funtastic Friday.
