Physical Education

The PE program encompasses age appropriate movement, fitness, skills, games and sports using a variety of equipment, in accordance with Victorian Essential Learning Standards. Our PE teacher plans the program and all students are expected to participate in PE sessions to the best of their ability, increase their fitness and show acceptable sporting conduct. The development of leadership skills in teamwork and sportsmanship are also integral part of our Physical Education program.

The program includes:

  • Bike education
  • Annual semi-intensive swimming program
  • Cross country running
  • Athletics
  • Annual Hoop Time basketball tournament for grades 3/4 and 5/6
  • Sailing program for Grade 5/6 students with high level swimming

The school also brings in specialists from SEDA and Koonung for a variety of clinics including:

  • Tennis
  • Hockey
  • Aussie Rules football
  • Soccer

All students at Box Hill North Primary School have one hour of physical education with the PE teacher each week and one-hour Team “Platoon” sessions each week.

Students in Years 5 and 6 participate in summer and winter inter-school sports each week competing against local primary schools. The Year 10 students from Koonung also support a super coaching session with the 5/6’s every second week introducing them to new sports and activities.

Many of our students go on to represent the school at district, zone and state levels.

Testimonials

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
