In Health and Physical Education, our students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to strengthen their sense of self, and build and manage satisfying relationships. Physical Education at Trafalgar Primary School aims to help students to be resilient, and to make decisions and take actions to promote their health, safety and physical activity participation.
The Physical Education Curriculum is based around developing fundamental movement skills through minor games and sports. Students begin to focus on sporting skills and strategies while continuing to develop their fundamental movement skills. In the upper levels, students hone in on skills and strategies used in sports and major games particularly teamwork, personal goal setting, coordination, agility and language associated with these areas.
Extra-curricular sporting opportunities are available at the district level and many of our sport teams progress through to division, region and state finals. These opportunities include cross-country, football, cricket, netball, soccer, basketball, T-ball, swimming, hockey, athletics and tennis.
Additional to the PE program we offer Bike Education to all year 4 and 5 students abd a swimming programs occur for all students. All students participate in an intensive two-week indoor swimming program designed and in line with statewide programs.
