Through Health and Physical Education, students learn how to enhance their health, safety and wellbeing and to contribute to building healthy, safe and active communities. It provides opportunities for students to develop skills, self-efficacy and dispositions to advocate for, and positively influence, their own and others’ health and wellbeing.
The Health and Physical Education curriculum teaches students how to be part of a healthy, active population and experience the personal and social benefits of living a healthy, active and fulfilling life. The Department of Education mandates that all schools include two hours of physical activity into the curriculum. At Bakers Hill Primary School a specialist teacher delivers a quality Physical Education program for all classes from Year 1 to Year 6. In addition to this the school participates in various whole school and interschool sporting activities with other local schools. These include:
- Faction and Interschool Athletics Carnivals
- Cross Country
- In Term Swimming Lessons (PP to Year 6)
- T20 Cricket Carnival (Years 5 and 6)
- Winter Fixtures/Lightning Carnival for Football, Netball and Frisbee (Years 4-6)
The Health Curriculum is delivered by classroom teachers. Protective Behaviours and Zones of Regulation are valued programs that help enhance our health programme.
