The Physical Education programme in Year 8 covers a large variety of skills in a range of different sports and activities. These activities include volleyball, touch rugby, cricket, athletics and netball. The programme is designed to further develop motor skills, through participation in both new and familiar activities. Students will continue developing ways of applying tactics and strategies to a game, including the use of space in attack and defence. By playing a variety of team sports, students will focus on how to work as a team and qualities that make a good team player. Sportsmanship, leadership and cooperation are emphasised in all aspects of the course.
Year 8 students have the opportunity to participate in all Inter-house Carnivals: Athletics, Swimming, Cross Country and Surfing. High achievers in these competitions will be selected to represent our College at ACC and Champion Schools level. In the lead up to these competitions, the Physical Education Department provides training sessions which are available to all students.
