Sport plays a significant part of both the physical and social development of a child. It is important to provide opportunities for the child to develop Fundamental Movement Skills that help with a wide variety of sports and games. At St. Agnes Primary School students are given the opportunity to play in team games and sport in a safe and supported environment. This ranges from class level sport to State representation.
Sport is scheduled on Wednesday for Infants and Thursday for Primary students. Each class usually runs a 1 hour skills or games session during the day. These are conducted in both class groups and whole year cohorts. Skills usually focus on Fundamental Movement Skills as listed by NSW Board of Studies. These skills are then worked into modified games aimed at teamwork and cooperation. An optional Intensive Swimming Program is offered to students in Term 4.
Students participate in School Carnivals in Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics with the emphasis on maximum participation for each student. Further opportunities are available for selection in representative carnivals within our Diocesan Sports system at Hastings Zone and Diocesan Regional levels before proceeding to Polding. Selection here results in representation at Primary School Sport Association (PSSA) State level. Representation opportunities available for students attending St. Agnes Primary School include:
