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.
