Sports & physical activity

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.

Warialda Public School has a proud history on the sporting field.  On a yearly basis students are exposed to: swimming, intensive swimming, tabloid rotations for major sports, athletics, cross country and town sport (tennis, bowls, squash, softball and touch).

Every student participates in weekly planned Physical Education (PE) activities. Students also participate in special programs including: Premiers Sporting Challenge, Jump Rope for Heart, Rugby league development days, netball develomment days and cricket development days.

Competative teams are entered into the NSW Primary School Sport Association's knockout competitions and individual students can trial for various zone sporting teams.

Active After School Sport

The Active After School' program is a Federal Government initiative designed to improve student gross motor skills and encourage them to participate in sporting activities. Each term students are able to select a sporting activity centred on fun, skill and co-ordination aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Regular ssessions run one afternoon per week and this program is coordinated by Miss Cole.
