Health and Physical Education

At Newman Primary School students participate in a Health and Physical Education program that is delivered by a specialist teacher. In the early years of schooling a focus is placed on the development of fundamental movement skills, whilst upper years this changes to applying movement and strategies within game situations.

The overarching goal of our program is to engage students and allow them to achieve success and enjoyment, in order to promote a healthy active lifestyle. In addition to movement and physical activity, students are offered programs in developing personal, social and community health.

The school boasts a large oval and undercover area that provide an optimal environment for developing the students’ movement skills.
