Wantirna South Primary has comprehensive PE program run by our PE and Sports teacher. All children participate in one hour of PE from Prep through to Year 6, with senior students having an hour extra of specialised sport training.
The acquisition of fundamental motor skills is a major focus in PE, particularly in Years P/1/2 as well as building confidence, strength and skill knowledge. The students’ progress from learning simple rules and procedures to enable them to participate in movement and physical activity, to using equipment safely and confidently.
Our middle and senior programs (3-6) focus on developing the students’ proficiency in their fundamental movement skills and applying strategic concepts when participating in games as well as demonstrating the positive behaviours of cooperation, teamwork and fair play.
