Sports & physical activity

 

Lindfield Public School students benefit from structured and unstructured opportunities to enjoy regular physical exercise through the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) curriculum.

Lindfield students enjoy and greatly benefit from the school's on-site 25 metre outdoor swimming pool which allows students to experience swimming and water activities, led by a qualified swimming instructor, in a safe and structured environment.

We have physical activity programs for children from Kindergarten to Year 6, with a focus on fundamental movement skills.

Sport and physical activity is a valued and accepted part of our school's curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child. It provides a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning and is an important expression of our culture.

The participation, enjoyment and skill development of our students is the corner-stone of the school sport/ physical activity program. All our students take part in this program.

There are also opportunities to represent our school at inter-school sports competitions. As a NSW public school we benefit from the opportunities for shared activities and competitions with other schools, coordinated by school sport associations. See the School Sport Unit website for details.

Our summer PSSA inter-school sports options for students in Years 3-6 includes: Touch Football, Cricket and Modball. The winter PSSA sports options are Soccer, AFL and Netball.

Students not selected into a PSSA team have the opportunity to select from a range of other recreational sports options including  rock climbing, tennis, zumba, sports skills and school sport.
