Sport and Physical Education

Physical Education promotes the potential for lifelong participation in physical activity through the development of motor skills and movement competence, health-related physical fitness and sport education.

Physical Education is taught from Prep – Year 6. Students in Years 5 and 6 also participate in Interschool Sports teams and an alternative sports program at Epping Leisure Centre every Friday. The school is very proud of the sporting achievements and flags and awards are proudly displayed in the GP room. Many children also achieve outstanding results in district sports such as Athletics and Cross Country with superb results in state and national championships.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is the hardware and software that enables data to be digitally processed, stored and communicated. ICT can be used to access, process, manage and present information; model and control events; construct new understanding; and communicate with others.ICT, an interdisciplinary domain, focuses on providing students with the tools to transform their learning and to enrich their learning environment. ICT program is taught as a Specialist class and extended to each classroom by providing laptop computers in the classrooms and updated wireless access to facilitate the program. In 2017 introduction of iPads in the Prep – 6 classrooms of the school.
