Physical Education and Science
At Mt Eliza Primary School Physical Education is a Specialist program with children attending one hour weekly sessions.
Students are involved in minor games and practise skills using a variety of equipment. Students practise Fundamental Motor Skills such as kicking, throwing, running and catching. They also participate in a variety of fitness activities throughout the year.
We also discuss the importance of healthy eating habits through discussing breakfast, play lunch and lunches.
Mt Eliza PS holds a Jogging Club every Wednesday from 8am during the months of April to October to encourage children to develop their fitness. We also participate in inter-school sports within the Mt Eliza District and other fun days such as basketball round robins, Jump Rope For Heart days and Footy days.
The specialist Science program at Mt Eliza Primary School caters for students in Years 3-6. This program creates opportunities for students to develop their understanding of important scientific concepts and processes, the practices used to develop scientific knowledge, the contribution of science to our culture and society and its applications in our lives.
Students participate in a broad range of hands on learning activities designed to develop these understandings as well as their enthusiasm for science.
Students attend specialist Science lessons for an hour every week. Every second year, we hold a Science Family Night/Expo where the school community are invited to share in the fun and celebration of our scientific investigations throughout the year.
