Physical Education


Physical Education at Ferntree Gully North is an integral part of student's learning and wellbeing. Students in P-2 have a 50 minute PE session each week in addition to weekly 50 minute PMP (Perceptual Motor Program) sessions focusing on fundamental motor skills, balance and coordination. Students in 3-6 also have a 50 minute PE session weekly along with 3/4 and 5/6 sport on Fridays. We have a strong focus on recognising and celebrating major sporting events such as whole school Mini Olympic Games. Students are frequently exposed to additional sporting learning opportunities including incursions and sports clinics from local community groups. Students in 3-6 have the opportunity to follow the SSV pathways in competing at District level and beyond in Swimming, Tennis, Cross Country, Athletics as well as Winter and Summer Sports. We are very proud of our strong history in Cross Country, finishing District Winners or Runners Up every year since 2012.
