Our Newhaven College Junior School Physical Education Program focuses on the development of skills to enable our students to participate in physical activity independently and as part of a team, as well as the fostering of a lifelong enjoyment of physical activity.
Junior School students take part in activities that build fitness levels as they work towards the development of motor skills that enable them to participate in sports such as volleyball, soccer, basketball, hockey, netball, and football. During these activities, our students also develop co-operation and sportsmanship associated with the playing of games and abiding by rules.
Junior School Prep students participate in PMP, the Perceptual Motor Program, as part of their Physical Education program. The program incorporates gross motor activities that address the most basic movement patterns. As students participate in these activities, they develop the skills to assist them to participate more successfully in games and activities which include fundamental motor skills, such as running, bouncing, galloping, jumping, skipping, and sliding.
Newhaven College Junior School is a member of the Victorian Primary Schools Sports Association, our students can participate in inter-school competitions in athletics, swimming, cross-country, football, soccer, netball, basketball, and cricket.
