Physical Education

Students at Southmoor participate in specialist PE classes once a fortnight. Additionally, they engage in tabloid sports each week with their entire grade level. During these sessions students are given the opportunity to correctly develop age-appropriate fundamental motor skills, learn about how specific actions impact on their physical health, increase their fitness levels and achieve an overall positive attitude towards sport. Within these sessions students engage in games and specific skill practices which assist them to succeed in a variety of different sports. Students are encouraged to attempt new skills, display sportsmanship and be inclusive towards others to develop teamwork skills and confidence within PE. Complementing the PE program, students participate in interschool sport, athletics, cross country and a swimming program. Southmoor is proudly a member of the Sporting Schools organisation.
