PHYSICAL & HEALTH EDUCATION

 

At Ashby Primary School we believe in making sure that all of our community members, and in particular our students, are active and healthy citizens. We place a strong emphasis on physical and health education and our students are exposed to this via weekly Physical Education and Health lessons delivered by a specialist teacher.

 

We expose our students a rigorous and purposeful program that aims to build their core fundamental motor skills from an early age through to our older students applying their high levels of skills in structured activities, games, and sports.

 

In addition to this, students in years 3-6 also participate in dedicated sport lessons which are facilitated by classroom teachers. This is aimed at building the capacity of our students to work as part of a team and within a cooperative environment.

 

Students at Ashby Primary School engage in whole school events such as our annual Cross Country (Term 1), Athletics Carnival (Term 3) and our Swimming Programs (Term 4).

 

Finally, as a school we also heavily engage in interschool sporting events that are organised by School Sport Victoria. This involves both Winter and Lightning Premierships (T-Ball, Volleyball, Football, Cricket, Netball, Basketball) and Hot Shots Tennis Carnival.
