Physical Education


At Mornington Park Primary School, we value physical activity for all students and their families. Once a week all students take part in a Health and Physical Education lesson, which not only allows students to be active, but also challenges their thinking towards physical activity and healthy living.

 

Students are encouraged to participate in our Inter-school Sport competitions including Cross Country, AFL, Athletics, Swimming, Summer and Winter Lightening Premierships and the Bike Ed Challenge.
