The Physical Education program run primarily by the specialist teacher at South Coogee Primary School aims to provide a combination of co-operation, competition, individual and group involvement.
The whole school program has teachers in Years 2-6 being involved in block sport and many inter-school fixtures. The school annually participates in various programs and carnivals with the main sports being netball, Australian rules football, minkey, hockey, cricket, soccer, tag-rugby, tennis and other disciplines.
The students are very proud of the trophies school teams won at Carnivals and Interschool events.
Swimming Lessons are provided for all students from Pre-Primary to Year Six. The school organises and facilitates both Faction Athletic and Interschool Athletic Carnivals within the Fremantle-Peel District.
There are a range of partnerships that broaden the Physical Education experience for the students which include visiting sport organisations, groups and individuals. The core of the program consists of components such as: Swimming (Aquatics), Dance, Gymnastics, Athletics and Game Skills. An external dance company provides a quality program for Years 2, 4 and 6.
The focus with the younger students is on fundamental movement skills especially disciplines of body management skills, loco-motor skills and object control skills.
Running Club: Students voluntarily participate in a teacher supervised early morning running club to improve fitness. This is followed by a Breakfast Club run by our school chaplain Caroline. This is not run during all weeks during the year, please look our for updates via CONNECT and Facebook.
