The Physical Education program at St Catherine of Siena aims to develop movement skills, concepts and strategies that enable students to participate in physical activities with competence and confidence. The knowledge, understandings, and skills students learn through the development of their movement skills encourage ongoing participation in sporting and physical activities across their lifespan and in turn lead to positive health outcomes.
Students participate in weekly Physical Education lessons with our expert specialist teachers and have opportunities to develop and practice fitness, movement and sporting skills through active games and skills sessions. Our facilities, including ovals, synthetic soccer pitch and running track and our COLA (covered outdoor learning area) provide for a wide variety of PE experiences in all weather conditions.
The Physical Education program also allows students opportunities to take part in extra-curricular sporting and physical activities. Some of these include:
- Annual Athletics and Cross Country Carnivals
- District, Divisional, Regional and State Competitions in a range of individual and team sports
- Jump Rope for Heart
- Bike Education
- Swimming Program
