Health and PE (Sport) is a vital part of a school curriculum. Not only are there obvious health benefits from having happy, healthy and active students, there are myriad social and personal development benefits from a well-run program of physical activity and sport. Our Sport and PE program is a priority for Warrnambool West Primary School, not only for its own sake but also for its undeniable benefits in supporting students in their learning and wellbeing.
We have a dedicated HPE Specialist teacher. Students particpate in weekly PE sessions, Junior (including the Perceptual Motor Program) and Senior School Community sports as well as special local and district events. The focus of our Physical Education and Sport program is on maximum participation, skill development and the essential areas of personal development that involvement in sport encourages.
We are active members of the DAMSWAK network of schools and are involved in many local sporting activities including: Cross County Championships, Interschool and District Althletics and Interschool Sport.
