Physical Education

The Physical Education program at UPPS aims to nurture a love of physical activity and a deep understanding of how physical activity benefits our physical and mental wellbeing.
SB-0-21803

Classes participate in one Physical Education lesson of one hour’s duration every week. During these classes students proceed through a sequential development of fundamental motor skills (i.e. throwing, catching, bouncing, kicking) and fundamental locomotion skills (i.e. running, leaping, dodging, balancing), beginning in Foundation and progressing through to Grade 6, increasing in complexity through the years.

Students are provided the opportunity to develop their capacity to link these skills into more complex and coordinated sequences. As student skill levels increase they apply their skills to appropriately modified activities and games, with fair play, cooperation and good sportsmanship at the forefront of all activities.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in a range of extra-curricular activities as well, including:

  • 10 Day Intensive Swimming Program (F – 2 students)
  • Open Water Learning Experience (3 – 6 students)
  • UPPS Athletics Carnival (3 – 6 students)
  • UPPS Modified Athletics Carnival (F – 2 students)
  • Interschool Sport (Grade 5/6 students)

The program supports students to prepare for an active and healthy lifestyle, helping them to develop the beliefs, positive attitudes and competencies for including regular physical activities into their lives.
