Health and Physical Education

At Resurrection, in the area of Health and Physical education, we focus on developing in the children a commitment to developing and maintaining their physical, mental, social and emotional health.

Children in Prep - 6 participate in a sequential program developing fundamental knowledge and skills of body movement through participation in the areas of motor skills, ball skills, athletics, gymnastics, aquatics, fitness, games skills and sport education.

We stress the importance of a healthy lifestyle leading to a life long commitment to individual and group physical activity.

We expose the children to the development of such skills needed to live a rewarding life as a connected member of society. Stressing the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the ability to identify and minimise those elements present in society which will cause harm to the individual.

OUT ‘N ABOUT PROGRAM:

Camps are an integral part of the school program and are seen by the school as an excellent way of helping children realise their own independence and capabilities. Our program extends from Prep to Year 6. The aim is to slowly, in small ways, prepare children (and their parents) for the sleepover camps. Our normal school program will be run along these lines:
• Yr Prep - Breakfast at school / activities
• Year 1 - Evening meal / games / home to bed
• Year 2 - Evening meal / games / home to bed
• Year 3 - One night at Sovereign Hill Camp, Ballarat / Lady Northcote Camp, Bacchus Marsh
• Year 4 - One night at Sovereign Hill Camp, Ballarat / Lady Northcote Camp, Bacchus Marsh
• Year 5 - Two nights at Mt Moreton Camp, Belgrave/ Camp Wyuna, Queenscliff
• Year 6 - Two nights at Mt Moreton Camp, Belgrave/ Camp Wyuna, Queenscliff
 

WATER SAFETY / SWIMMING PROGRAM:

Children from Prep to Year 2 are taught water safety and swimming skills in approximately ten daily lessons. Please note, the organisation of the swimming program may alter according to varying class groupings. This is seen as an important part of the school's Physical Education Program and all children are expected to participate. Having private lessons will not exclude the child from participating in this compulsory program. To allow this to happen creates an impossible supervision problem.
