Physical Education

A minimum of two hours Physical Education is provided for all students at South Coogee PS. Our Physical Education Specialist Teacher provides individual lessons as well as coordinating the Upper, Middle and Lower Primary Classes with weekly rotational activities.

Our students compete in Intra and Interschool competitions in Cross-Country, Athletics, Australian Rules Football, Netball, Soccer, Tag Rugby, Cricket and Minkey Hockey.

Students can also choose to participate in our morning ‘Runner’s Club’ where they run laps of a dedicated course and then have a healthy breakfast together afterwards. We also entered a team of students, staff, parents and community members in the Chevron City to Surf this year. There was a high level of participation and enjoyment from everyone involved.

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.

South Coogee Primary School won the highly prestigious award from the West Australian Football Commission to design our own footy jumper. Pictured below is South Coogee Physical Education Teacher Gary Gough with the winning design that was on display at the AFL School Ambassador Professional Learning Day at the WACA. In order to be successful in this competition Yvonne Bux, our Visual Arts specialist spent countless hours and over 10 years persevering with students to design the winning jumper. Each year Yvonne would ask the students if they wanted to enter again… Their motto was to not give up until we won together, in the end this relentless attitude payed off and we did it! it was a great sense of pride and achievement for everyone involved.
