Physical Education Overview
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Being active is a key component of good health for any age. It strengthens muscles and bones and ensures that their bodies are capable of performing at their optimal capacity. Being active will also aid in student academics, as studentsare more aware and energised within the classroom.
The Kororoit Creek Primary School Physical Education Program for 2017 is filled with innovative ways to get students more engaged and involved in physical activity. To support this, AUSVels and the PYP framework are utilised as the scaffolding for the Health and Physical education curriculum across P-6. The program connects with classroom units across all year levels where applicable. This ensures that all learning can be interconnected and allows to us to make the learning more meaningful.
This blog has been developed to inform the community of Kororoit Creek what the students have achieved, what they are involved in and where they are headed with their physical development.
The Learner Profile, PYP Attitudes, and the Transdisciplinary Skills are integral with all of the learning experiences that students are engaged in regardless of subject area. Throughout this page you will be able to see how each of these areas are addressed within our program.
Kororoit Creek Primary Schools Physical Education Department serves to educate students to become lifelong learners of health and wellness by participating in activities that develop behaviours, which encourage healthy decision-making, appropriate social skills, and lifelong physical fitness in and outside of the educational setting.
Our goal is to produce a physically educated and healthy person who:
- KNOWS the implications of and the benefits from involvement in physical activities
- COMMITS to healthy habits including physical activity in daily life
- PRACTICES skills to become proficient at them
- STRIVES to learn new things that are necessary when maintaining a healthy lifestyle
