Physical Education

Physical education is an important component of Primary Education at St Therese Primary School.

The emphasis of the program is to promote physical health, positive attitudes towards physical activity, develop skills and to have fun. Physical exercise is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. Children need to develop their gross and fine motor skills which have impacts on all areas of Contemporary Learning.

Our program Foundation to Year Six provides opportunities to achieve personal challenges and take risks while at the same time focusing on cooperative behaviour. The program includes fitness, balls skills and games, athletics, swimming Prep to Year four. The senior school participates in a surfing and water safety program. An Annual athletics carnival is held at the end of term one each year.

The school is part of the Geelong District School Sports Association (GDSSCA), where we compete regularly with other Catholic schools in the region in sports such as Athletics, Basketball, Football, Netball, Soccer, T-Ball, Softball, Lightning premierships, Round Robins and Friday afternoon interschool sports.
