Melton Primary School takes pride in providing all students with a weekly 60 minute session taught by a physical education professional. We have an indoor gymnasium, so sessions are not dependent on weather. Our storeroom is regularly restocked and is full of engaging, specialized equipment which is used to teach a variety of skills and techniques, across all areas of the Health and Physical Education curriculum.
Physical Education lessons taught at Melton Primary School are all-encompassing and are structured, specific and sequential. Each year level is allocated a physical education unit which get explored and taught explicitly. Students are encouraged to question, seek feedback and explore and develop their own strategies within the unit. Students develop a variety of physical, mental and social skills within each unit and are given a wide variety of opportunities to put their new skills and understandings into practice.
Students at Melton Primary School are fortunate to have a wide range of sporting carnivals and competitions, which they have the opportunity to participate in.
Melton Primary School Carnivals include:
F-2 Junior Athletics Carnival
3-6 House Swimming Carnival
3-6 House Athletics Carnival
3-6 House Cross Country Carnival
*All sporting carnivals are held annually, where students compete to earn points for their house. These events usually draw large crowds made up of parents/carers and other members of our school community.
Students who are participate and perform well at our school Athletics, Cross Country and Swimming carnivals. Are selected to participate in a regular structured training programme to further develop their skills and ability. They then have the opportunity to be selected to represent Melton Primary School at the Melton Primary School Sports Association (MPSSA) district carnivals. From there students have opportunities to progress to divisional carnivals, then onto regional carnivals followed by the state carnival.
