Physical Education helps students develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for a healthy, active and safe lifestyle. At Springfield P.S., the Physical Education program is aligned to the WA Curriculum, Health and Physical Education, with a focus on both Fundamental Movement skills and Fundamental Game skills. The program targets the areas of students’ Body Management, Self-Management and Object Control.
The program is run by a Physical Education Specialist and all students attend one Physical Education lesson each week. Students in years 4, 5 and 6 also participate in a weekly Cluster Sport session.
The students are involved in a wide and varied range of activities during the school year. Students are given the opportunity to participate in:
Faction Athletics and Cross-Country Carnivals
