HPE - Mr Dakin

HPE is awesome!

Welcome students, parents and wider community of Maryborough Central SS. This section of the website is specific to everything involving HPE and Sport. These two areas have distinct activities that will be outlined below.

Health and Physical Education     

These classes are held every week for students to participate in a structured progression of learning from Gross Motor Movements, Manipulation Activities, Modified Game Components & Full Sport Units. This scaffold allows each child to learn the fundamental skills in isolation in the lower year levels and progress to full sports in the upper school year levels.

By the end of Year 6, Central School Students would have had multiple opportunities to develop and learn specific components of each sport. The components that are repeated through each sport are (defending strategies, attacking strategies, positions, rules, and skill techniques).

Students in years 4-6 will also engage in discussions and activities that allows students to learn about the effects of physical activity on the body during and after the event.

Students will engage in various fitness tests and activities designed to give students a personal reflection of their health and fitness at this point in time. All test results will be private to encourage self-reflection instead of peer judgement.

All of this learning is aimed at giving students the skills and knowledge and understanding required to maintain an active and healthy life.

This area is a pathway for students to learn, participate, compete and be selected for various sports. Students between the ages of 10-12 will have the opportunity to participate in inter-school sport in Term 1 & Term 4. This program is designed to allow students to compete against other schools and practise all of the skills and knowledge they have learnt in P.E. lessons. Selections for each sport will be held at after school trials or during inter-school sport competitions.

Maryborough Central S.S. will hold their own Athletics and Cross Country Carnivals each year. Students will participate in a variety of activities and events with the possibility of being selected in the Central School Team for these sports.

The pathway for students to be selected in teams is as follows: School Team / Maryborough District School Team / Wide Bay Team / Qld Team. Please refer to the documents attached for specific information

We look forward to providing an engaging, purposeful and learning rich environment for students to actively develop life-long skills and knowledge, which is designed to keep them active and healthy throughout their lives.
