To purchase new equipment for Playtime, PE and sport to promote high quality activities.


This year we aim to provide children with at least 15 minutes worth of daily exercise outside of their allocated PE time. We also are striving to provide at least out of school Physical Activity opportunity for all children from Year 1 and above. We hope this will allow 100% of the children to find a physical activity they can continue with after leaving our school. This year we hope to provide the children with popular sports such as Netball, Football, Rugby and other such sports, as well as opportunities such as Archery, Fencing and Street Dance.
