Specialist Programs

Physical Education

Teacher: Michael Hill

Every class has between 1-2 specialist Physical Education lessons each week.

At the core of Physical Education is the acquisition of movement skills and concepts to enable students to participate in a range of physical activities – confidently, competently and creatively. As a foundation for lifelong physical activity participation and enhanced performance, students acquire an understanding of how the body moves and develop positive attitudes towards physical activity participation. They develop an appreciation of the significance of physical activity, outdoor recreation and sport in Australian society and globally. Movement is a powerful medium for learning, through which students can practise and refine personal, behavioural, social and cognitive skills.

Every class has 1 lesson of Auslan each week.

Auslan aims to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to enable students to:

  • communicate in Auslan
  • understand language, culture and learning and their relationship, and thereby develop an intercultural capability in communication
  • understand themselves as communicators
  • develop a knowledge and an understanding of the diversity of Deaf experience and the nature of identity.



Teacher: Aleah Sexton

Classes in Reception to year 3 have 1 lesson of Music/Drama each week.

Students in years 4-6 have the opportunity to join our school choir, which meet once per week for two lessons.

Dance enables students to develop a movement vocabulary with which to explore and refine imaginative ways of moving individually and collaboratively. Students choreograph, rehearse, perform and respond as they engage with dance practice and practitioners in their own and others’ cultures and communities.

Music has the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich all students, exciting the imagination and encouraging students to reach their creative and expressive potential. Skills and techniques developed through participation in music learning allow students to manipulate, express and share sound as listeners, composers and performers. Music learning has a significant impact on the cognitive, affective, motor, social and personal competencies of students.

Every class has between 1-2 specialist STEAM lessons each week.

STEAM Education is an approach to teaching and learning that combines science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics to guide student inquiry, discussion, and problem solving.

Research has shown that students who study STEAM are more creative, flexible and able to take advantage of the changes that are predicted in the workforce and workplaces of the future.
