So what has PE been all about this year?

Dear students and parents,

I have collected photos of each year grouping as a representation of the activities we have covered in Physical Education classes this semester. 

Each year grouping (K/PP, Yr 1/2, Yr 3/4, Yr 5/6) has it’s own page on the ‘PE Lessons’ tab at the top of this homepage. I have added a paragraph or two explaining what the learning activities were and their importance in developing well-being through physical activity.

I encourage you to view the photos with your child(ren) so they can further explain what they have been discovering in Physical Education.

Some questions you might like to ask your child(ren):

Kindy – Yr 2:

  • What are the children playing in these photos?
  • What did you like about playing these games?
  • Do you have a favourite game? What is it?
  • Which activity do you like the least? Why?
  • Why does Mr B start each lesson with 60 seconds of stillness and silence?
  • Why do we play sport? What is good about it?
  • Tell me some rules you have to follow during sport lessons.
  • What sport or exercise games can we play at home during the holidays?

Yr 3-6:

  • Which activities were your favourite?
  • What do you think are your best skills?
  • What is the purpose of spending 60 seconds in silence at the beginning of each lesson?
  • What tactics and strategies did you discover were important in playing these games?
  • Did you learn anything about yourself this semester in terms of your abilities?
  • What does ‘resilience’ mean and why is it important to develop?
  • Do you plan to exercise over the Summer holidays? How? What activities?

I hope the photos, descriptions and discussions you have with each other give some insight into what PE and sport at Queen of Apostles is all about. I look forward to further developing the curriculum here next year and providing more learning opportunities for our students.

Wishing you all a safe and Merry Christmas.

Cricket Stars!

Congratulations to our cricket teams for their awesome performances at the carnival on Tuesday. Our Boys A and Girls B teams won their division, bringing home the respective shields. Queen of Apostles had all-round talented squads and were brilliantly coached by Gary Edmonds. The students loved his training sessions leading up to the big day, and the hard work paid off.

Thank you also to Mr Ianelleo, Mrs Kohl and Mrs Ophel for managing our teams. It was also great to have some parents come along and support our students.

Cali Star!

Natasha has quite a successful weekend at the recent WA State Calisthenics Competition.

She came 2nd in the 9 year old Solo Division, and 1st in the 10 year old Duo Division with her partner Taya Chiappini from Yidarra (coached by Kaitlen Selby ex Queenies student).

Well done Natasha

Aths Success!

Our Interschool Aths team put in a great showing last week with a fantastic effort to finish 7th out of 9 schools (not bad for a small school). We placed 5th in the APPS Shield (Average Points Per Student). The hard work at training paid off with places in the relays and leaderball. Our throwers on day 1 were fantastic.

Thanks to Mrs Hogg and Mrs Salvia for their help, and to the many parent/grandparent supporters who cheered on our team.

Thank you to Tom Connolly and Sam Gostt for stepping in at the last minute to replace team members who couldn’t make it.

Congratulations to Alicia Herbert for winning Yr 5 Runner-up Champion Girl!

Flynn back to back!

We were very proud of all our students for their huge efforts, fantastic behaviour and awesome sportsmanship displayed over two days of competition.  Sports carnivals are great events for students to practice the values of creativity, excellence, resilience and respect, and there were many examples of this.

After a fun-filled Day #2 it was Flynn who was awarded their second consecutive athletics carnival shield, capping off a great year after winning both the swimming and cross country shields. Flynn also won the ‘Bonus Points’ shield.
