The aim in Physical Education is for students to be actively involved in sport and to have the skills required to participate in a fun and supportive environment. In order to achieve this, students at Narre Warren North Primary focus directly on the fundamental motor skills (run, kick, catch, jump and bounce) from Prep right through to Grade 6. In the Junior area of the school they focus heavily on the development of these skills and then as they progress through to Middle and Senior School they start using these skills through four main categories: Striking/Fielding, Net/Wall, Invasion and Target games.
The Striking/Fielding unit aims to equip students with skills to participate in any game that involves a ‘batting’ or ‘fielding’ team. The Net/Wall unit equips students with the skills to participate in any game that involves hitting a ball over a net or against a wall. The Invasion Unit aimed to equip students with skills to participate in any game that involves invading the other team’s space to score a goal. The Target Unit aimed to equip students with the skills to participate in any game that involves moving an object to hit a target.
As our students have a strong passion for sport, we offer a wide range of extra-curricular sporting opportunities. These range from incursions where outside organisations come into the school to run session on Hockey, Little Athletics or Basketball. We participate in the local Hoop Time Basketball Competition and St.Margaret’s Cup Netball Tournament. Students in Grade 5 and 6 participate in Inter-school Sport with local schools on a Friday morning in Term 2 and 3. We also compete in the Endeavour Hills District Sporting Association where we compete in the District Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.
