Physical Education

Sport and Physical Education are valued at St Agatha's as an integral aspect of each child's development.  There is a strong emphasis on developing fundamental movement skills through a program that is based on fine and gross motor skills and modified games.

Students in Year 5 and 6 participate in a gymnastic program in Term 1 with qualified coaches from School Gymnastics Australia. 

​Swimming and athletics skills are developed and tested in a carnival atmosphere which provides a p​ersonal best attitude.

The school provides training opportunities for participation in District and Catholi​​c Zone inter-school competitions.

Students in older year levels (4/5/& 6) are involved in weekly interschool sports during term 2 of the​ school year. School representative sporting opportunities exist in Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country. District representative opportunities exist as we are affiliated with the City District Sports Association which offers trials in Netball, Touch, Tennis, Soccer, Hockey, Cricket and Rugby League.
