Specialist Programs - Physical Education

Beaumaris North Primary School provides a Physical Education Program as outlined in the Health and Physical Education Learning Area and the Personal and Social Capability of the Victorian Curriculum and the Primary Years Programme – Personal, Social and Physical Education Scope and Sequence.

Physical Education is an all-encompassing term, including fitness skills, Fundamental Skills Program, gymnastics, dance, recreation, health and appropriate values and knowledge. Learning is a developmental process in PE.  The PE lessons are planned using the Fundamental Skills Program and supporting the classroom Unit of Inquiry where appropriate. The PYP Concepts, Attitudes and Learner Profile attributes are referred to throughout PE lessons as students are encouraged to demonstrate their understanding through involvement in the program.

Students are exposed to a wide range of sporting opportunities at Beaumaris North Primary School.

  • Children must bring a drink bottle to all Physical Education lessons. Sunscreen is available if students wish to use it.

  • At various times during the year, students from Years 3 – 6 have the opportunity to participate in the following House Sport carnivals.

    • Swimming Carnival (Years 4 – 6)
    • Cross Country (Years 3 – 6)
    • Athletics Carnival (Years 3 – 6)

    Depending on an individuals and/or teams performance (house-based time trials), they can continue to compete in a high level of competition through School Sport Victoria. The competition continues through a series of elimination carnivals including District, Division, Regional, State and finally National competition.

    See House System and House Captains.

  • Throughout the year, the students in Years 5 and 6 compete against other schools in the surrounding suburbs in Inter-school sports. The students choose from the following summer and winter sports:

    Due to large numbers, the children that are not participating in Inter-school sports are offered other programs outside the school Curriculum.

  • Along with Physical Education, the Year 3’s and 4’s participate in sport once a week. This involves all the students being mixed into different groups within their year level to participate in a variety of sports and games. This program is designed to help develop the students’ skills in sports as well as team building exercises.

  • Year 5/6 Sport focuses on skills and rules of the Inter-school sports that are played throughout the year.

Please see Compass for the dates of our sporting events.
