Personal development, health and physical education

Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.

According to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), students are expected to participate in PDHPE for between 1.5 and 2.5 hours per week in Kindergarten to Year 6.

PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.

Term 1 Sports Report

So we have come to the end of Term 1 and a great deal of sport has taken place at Woy Woy Public School. I would firstly like to congratulate all students on their efforts this term. The amount of dedication and sportsmanship shown by our students is to be commended.

Our School Swimming Carnival

The Years 2-6 Swimming Carnival was held at the Peninsular Leisure Centre in Week 3. It was a lovely day and it was great to see all the students having a go in so many events. Also every house, Scott, Davis and Webb showed the fighting team spirit. A huge thank you to the Stage 3 staff for organising the day and the rest of the teachers and parents for making it run so smoothly. This year we implemented a parents seating area and it was great to see our parents enjoying the new space. Thank you. Well done to the students who achieved a place in their age events.


Zone Swimming Carnival

The PSSA Zone Swimming Carnival was held in week 8 and I would like to congratulate the following students who made it onto our 2017 Zone Team.  Again each student showed great sportsmanship and it was great to see so many happy faces, even though we did not progress to Sydney North.  A huge thankyou goes out to Mrs El-Kurdi, who did a fantastic job as our team manager.

Boys and Girls Soccer

The boys and girls soccer trials were held by Mr Wolski and Mr Graham this term. Congratulations to all students who tried out and to the ones who made the teams for 2017. I know these teachers and students have been training hard and working well as a team.  

Boys Rugby League

Congratulations to the boys who were selected for the Rugby 7s this event will be held in week 11 on Monday 3rd of April. Thank you to Mrs Paul Betts for coaching our team this year.

Boys and Girls Cricket.

Mr Price, Mrs Mills and Mr Graham ran trials for the boys and girls cricket teams. Congratulations to the students who made the teams for cricket. Unfortunately due to the weather and closures of the ovals we are yet to play our games. We are hoping that the weather holds off so the girls can play in week 11 on Tuesday the 4th of April. The boys date is still to be advised.  

Girls Netball

Mrs Young (Stage 3) and Mrs Nebauer ran their netball trials in Term 1. They have been training in preparation for their first game which will be in Term 2. Good Luck Girls.

Boys and Girls Basketball

Mr Brady and Miss Kleppen held trails for basketball this term and we would like to congratulate the students who were selected. Good luck in your first game and we look forward to hearing about your results.

School Cross Country.

Our School Cross Country is on Friday the 31st of March (if weather permits). The backup date is in week 11 on Thursday 6thApril. Good luck to all of our wonderful students.

I look forward to many more sporting events and games in Term 2.  Some things we have to look forward to are; Zone Cross Country, Most of our first matches for Knockout  Sports and the School Athletics Carnival.

I would also like to remind parents that all the PSSA sporting trials are posted on our school website to keep you up to date.

Have a happy and safe Easter.
