PE (Physical Education)
Physical Education is the acquisition of movement skills,
concepts and strategies
At Seaton Park Primary School, students participate in physical education with a specialist physical education teacher, following the Australian Curriculum. In junior primary, the focus of physical education is developing students’ fundamental movement skills (FMS).
FMS are the building blocks for participation in physical activity and include skills such as throwing, catching, kicking, striking, running, dodging, jumping, skipping and hopping. Our PE teacher is also a qualified physiotherapist and can identify students who need extra support.
We also enter teams in local sporting competitions, including the NWJSA soccer competition, and local basketball, futsal and netball competitions. Students are also supported to participate in state based primary school competitions, including SAPSASA. We have entered teams in athletics, cross country, basketball, beach volleyball, touch football and badminton, and students are able to trial for district and state teams.
