The Physical Education Program at Orelia Primary School comprises two branches, from Kindy to Year 2 the focus is on Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS), these skills are consolidated in Year 3-6 where modified games are a key focus.
All classes have a one-hour lesson with their class and one hour of organised games or modified sport on a Friday.
The emphasis is on participation, having a go and trying your best. Children are encouraged to improve their own fitness and skills and take responsibility for their own physical health and wellbeing. We endeavour to instill lifelong habits, to stay fit, play sport and stay healthy.
Our students in Years 4-6 have been developing their cricket skills in Term 1, 2021. The culmination of this cricket program in Physical Education for students is participating in the T20 Blast Cricket Carnival organised by the Kwinana Schools Sport Association (KSSA). Selected students were given the opportunity to use skills and strategies learned in a match situation with the added bonus of being able to play with students from other schools. This year we entered a boys, girls and mixed team to compete.
