Health and Physical Education
Mrs Tenille Lloyd, email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Health and Physical Education Lessons are taken by our HPE Specialist, Mrs Tenille Lloyd.
All students at
Kuraby learn Health and Physical Education which is aligned to the current
National HPE Curriculum. One Unit is taught per Term so students can develop
essential skills and refine these skills in the designated activity or sport.
As students progress each year, they build on their previous knowledge in order
to master physical skills, equipping students with the skills they need to
participate in a range of sports.
In Term 1 students
participate in our school's annual Cross Country Carnival and Fun Run. The
Kuraby Fitness Club is offered every Wednesday morning at 8:15am to all
students to develop their endurance in preparation for the Carnival. The
Senior Carnival is for all Year 3 to Year 6 students.
In Term 2 students
learn, practice and develop skills in Athletics for participation in our
school's annual Athletics Carnival towards the end of the Term. Training
is held most breaks, concentrating on a specific discipline each day in order
to grasp basic skills and build on previous knowledge. Our Senior students
have the opportunity to participate in the 100m, 200m, 800m, 4 x 100m Shuttle
Relay, High Jump, Long Jump, Shot Put and Discus. Our Junior students
(Prep – Grade 2) participate in a Junior Athletics Carnival. Students take part
in a 50m Sprint, High Jump, Long Jump, Shot Put and Tabloid Games. The emphasis
of this carnival is on fun, participation and the development of athletics skills
for completion in later years in our Senior Carnival.
(10, 11 and 12 Years only)
Kuraby are given the opportunity to represent their school and the Eastern
Taipans District (formerly Sunnybank District) in a range of sports.
Notices will be put in the newsletter on upcoming trials. Students will be seen
during PE or class, and posters will be hung around the school to
make students aware of the trial. Any student can get a form from Mrs
Lloyd, but must display quality skills or play at a Club or Rep level. Where
there are many students wishing to trial for a sport, a session will be held to
select the school representatives, as only 2 students per age group can proceed
to the District Trial. For Cross Country in Term 1, the top 6
students in the 10, 11, and 12 year age group could possibly go on to represent
our school at the District Cross Country Carnival if they meet the time limit
set for their age group. Our junior students (Prep - Year 2) compete in a
Junior Cross Country Carnival where the emphasis is on fun, fitness and
development of running skills. For Track and Field, students who place 1st, 2nd
and 3rd in the Track events, or throw/ jump the required qualifying
distance/height, could possibly gain selection in the Kuraby Track and Field
Team to compete at the Eastern Taipans District Athletics Carnival.
Inter-school (Gala Day)
Students have the
opportunity to represent our school in the Sunnybank District Inter-School
Sport Gala Day competition against other schools in our area, an all-day
competition held over 3 days throughout the year. In Semester 2, students
will have the opportunity to participate in Cricket, Touch Football and
Netball. These sports can change depending on demand.
Friday Afternoon Sport
When Gala Days are not
being held, all Year 5 and 6 students participate in a variety of sports on a
Friday afternoon. This is aimed to provide students with an opportunity to
build on their skills and teamwork in a non-competitive, friendly and familiar
Kuraby Fitness Club
every Wednesday 8:15-8:30am
All students are welcome
to participate in the Fitness Club. The main focus is endurance (doing
laps of the junior cross-country course for 15 minutes), however, other forms
of fitness may be addressed at various times during the year.
