Physical education

Physical Education and Sport are an important aspect of all children’s education at Selby Primary School.

In the junior school students develop their basic motor skills and enjoy being involved in simple games, dance and gymnastic activities. The emphasis is on providing a foundation for later years and the fun that participation in physical activities and sport can bring.

In the senior school these fundamental skills are developed and then applied to more complex games and activities. Whilst children enjoy the more traditional sports they are also provided with the opportunity to experience a wide variety of other sporting activities including golf, table tennis and badminton

An intensive swimming program is also offered to all students.

A highlight of our sporting program is our annual House Sports, a combination of athletic and novelty events. Many former students return on this day to be part of this fun and exciting event.

Opportunities to participate in district, division and state events are also provided through our membership of School Sport Victoria.
