The Physical Education Program at St Mary Mackillop CPS aspires to generate a level of well being, enjoyment and continuing progress of physical activity in accordance with the Victorian Curriculum.
Integral to Physical Education is the acquisition of movement skills, concepts and strategies to enable children to confidently, competently and creatively participate in a range of physical activities. This is achieved through the development of fundamental motor skills and providing a plethora of challenging opportunities and games such as Cricket, Soccer, AFL, Cross Country, Athletics and more.
Children participate in a structured program from Years Prep to 6 for one hour a week with the Physical Education specialist, where skills are sequentially developed. Minor and major games are taught and played as well as athletics activities. Children are able to participate in Interschool sporting activities as they progress into the senior year levels.
St Mary Mackillop has access to fantastic facilities such as an indoor basketball stadium, a large AFL oval, outdoor basketball courts and a wide-range of sporting equipment, for all students to move, grow and develop fundamental motor skills in safe and inclusive learning environments.
