At West Leeming Primary School, the Physical Education program is focused on:
- the acquisition and refinement of fundamental movement skills; and
- the development and application of strategies and tactics in game situations.
Students receive a one-hour lesson each week from the Physical Education Specialist teacher. Lessons are designed to be engaging and enjoyable, with the ultimate aim of empowering students to confidently participate in physical activity throughout their lives.
In addition to Physical Education lessons, students at West Leeming participate in morning fitness activities with their classroom teacher each day. Junior, Middle and Senior Sport sessions (each of one-hour duration) are also held regularly to support the Physical Education program and to prepare students for various faction and interschool carnivals (Summer, Winter, Cross Country and Athletics).
