At Marysville Primary School, we aim to instil in our students a passion for physical activity and an awareness for physical and mental health. Weekly lessons focus on the importance of participation, encouraging a healthy lifestyle, physical activity, teamwork, sportsmanship and fun. We want to encourage every child to be actively involved and educated through fun and engaging movement activities. Knowledge and skills in this area are developed through play, games, gymnastics, ball handling and movement awareness. Participation in team sport cultivates a sense of cooperation, assists with the development of friendship and fosters appreciation of what it is to be a ‘good sport.’
During physical education activities the emphasis is on skill acquisition, participation for all, the development of healthy attitudes and an enjoyment of physical activity. In the early years the students in Prep /one are involved in developing their fundamental motor skills (e.g. running, throwing, catching, dodging, ball bouncing, kicking, striking and forehand hitting) in both skill development and modified games. Students are also involved in basic movement activities such as dance.
All student s participate in a 10 day swimming program, a dance program and the cluster cross country held at Eildon.
