Health & Wellbeing
The Health and Physical Education learning area focuses on the multi dimensions of health and how these influence the development of the individual. There are a number of sensitive issues within this learning area where the partnership between school and home is particularly important. Care needs to be taken to ensure all community groups’ customs and practices are considered and classroom programs modified accordingly.
A Perceptual Motor Program is part of the overall Transition classroom program. It runs for four days a week and involves a sequential range of developmental activities both physical and cognitive which link directly to the development of skills for classroom learning.
CFS offers a swimming programme in Term 1 with a culminating community swimming carnival and an athletics program in Term 2 with a culminating community athletics carnival.
CFS also offer a Nutrition program to all students as a specialist subject. Students are all involved in planting and care for our 6 vegetable patches in our garden. They then have regular cooking sessions in our state of the art home economics room.
