Physical Education

Physical Education helps students to develop team spirit, co-operation and good sportsmanship skills. Students from Foundation to Year 6, participate in weekly Physical Education skills session.  Our students experience a lot of success at our sports carnivals and often go on to compete at higher levels, including Region and State level.  Classroom teachers are also encouraged to get students active during the school week to complement our Physical Education program.

Swan Hill Primary School has four different Sporting Houses, and each child is affiliated with a team. Each of the Houses represent our local indigenous language of the Wemba-Wemba people and represent the land, water, animals and sun. The Sporting Houses are Milloo (Blue), meaning ‘Murray River’, Nyawi (Yellow), meaning ‘Sun’, Kira (Green), meaning ‘Leaves’ and Wiran (Red), meaning ‘The Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo’ and a token of this area. Students vote for a female and male House Captain from Year 6 each year. These students represent their team at our sporting carnivals and are chosen for their great sportsmanship on and off the field.
