A St Mary's we aim to develop an enthusiasm for Physical Education and sport so that all students will pursue an active and healthy lifestyle. Our students participate in a 45 minute weekly Physical Education lesson, which develops the necessary skills to effectively partcipate in a range of sports. All students also participate in a 45 minute sport lesson, which allows all students to hone their skills in a game situation.
All students in Grade Prep, 1 & 2 also participate in a weekly PMP (Perceptual Motor Program) lesson in Terms 1, 2 & 4. In addition to this, the children are able to access a wide range of sports equipment for use during recess and lunch breaks.
St Mary’s is a member of the Yarram and District Primary Sport Association, where competitions are held for students in Grades 3-6 during the year. Students have the opportunity to participate in swimming, athletics, cross country and winter sport events.
