Physical Education

Physical Education 


In Physical Education, we focus on positive sportsmanship, fair play, and respect. Students practice how to treat others during games, drills, and skills. Students learn the best way to handle a variety of circumstances including, winning, losing, taking turns, and resolving disagreements. While practicing our various games, the approaches and strategies are designed to assist students' knowledge in a broad range of sports and numerous situations. Each year level will target different sports and activities throughout the school year, ensuring they receive a wide variety of skills and strategies such as improving fundamental skills (balancing, running, jumping, catching, throwing, kicking, hopping) as well as learning skills in different sports (Soccer, Basketball, Netball, Volleyball, Badminton, AFL).


Physical Education aims to develop the knowledge, understanding, and skills to enable students to:

  • access, evaluate, and synthesise information to take positive action to protect, enhance and advocate for their own and others’ health, wellbeing, safety, and physical activity participation across their lifespan
  • develop and use personal, behavioral, social, and cognitive skills and strategies to promote a sense of personal identity and wellbeing and to build and manage respectful relationships
  • acquire, apply and evaluate movement skills, concepts and strategies to respond confidently, competently, and creatively in a variety of physical activity contexts and settings
  • engage in and enjoy regular movement-based learning experiences and understand and appreciate their significance to personal, social, cultural, environmental, and health practices and outcomes



Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) is important to the learning process and provided an essential basis for future development. The Perceptual Motor Program (PMP), focuses on the perceptual process involved in performing movements, provided for students in school. Small groups perform a range of enjoyable movement activities developing spatial awareness, coordination, balance, body awareness, and language concepts. Students learn by doing and making discoveries about themselves and the world around them using specialized PMP equipment in the school gymnasium.




Kings Park Primary also attends a Year 3 - 6 Athletics carnival annually. Students take a bus to an outside location where they contribute to activities such as long jump, 100m sprint, shot put, discus, and high jump. Student involvement in all events is encouraged. The Athletics days are a great opportunity for students to put in place the skills that they have been learning in the PE lessons.




Interschool Sports has a focus on Summer and Winter sports where our Year 5 and 6 students practice every Friday morning to gain the skills needed for the sport they have trailed for. Sports include Soccer, Basketball, Netball, Tee-ball, Soft Ball, Cricket, AFL, Rounders, and Volley Stars. Students either take a bus to play against another school on their grounds, or vice versa where schools attend our ground to verse Kings Park. This is an amazing opportunity for students to display the skills that they have carried on from PE lessons.
