What’s Happening in PDHPE

Anatomy model in Montessori classroom.

There’s a lot happening in PDHPE (Personal Development, Health and Physical Education) this term!


In the coming weeks, students will be learning about the digestive system, looking closely at the mouth, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, salivary glands, liver, gallbladder and pancreas.

Stage 2 will be learning the basics of what happens with each organ, while Stage 3 will delve deeper into the process.


Stage 1 has been working on their AFL skills, including: hand passing, drop-kicking and picking up the ball off the ground. In the coming lessons, students will practise chest mark, overhead mark, as well as bounces.

Stage 2 and 3 completed their Fitness Challenge, with most of the children improving their scores. They completed one minute of maximum repetitions for squats, push-ups and sit-ups. They also measured their flexed arm hang, standing long jump, trunk lift, trunk flexion and shoulder stretch. 

Starting Week 4, Stage 2 will practise their golf skills in the Hall, while Stage 3 will be learning AFL at the park.

Jump Rope For Heart

Since starting Jump Rope For Heart on 28 May 2021, we have raised over $4,000 for the Heart Foundation.

Any children who still wish to participate and raise funds can be signed up at https://www.jumprope.org.au/parents.

For any children who are looking to learn new skills with a jump rope, the Heart Foundation have put together this guide.

Thanks for all the support in this great cause and for keeping the children skipping rope.
