Sports & physical activity

We have physical activity programs for children from Kindergarten to Year 6, with a focus on fundamental movement skills.

Sport and physical activity is a valued and accepted part of our school's curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child. It provides a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning and is an important expression of our culture.

The participation, enjoyment and skill development of our students is the corner-stone of the school sport/ physical activity program. All our students take part in this program.

There are also opportunities to represent our school at inter-school sports competitions. As a NSW public school we benefit from the opportunities for shared activities and competitions with other schools, coordinated by school sport associations. See the School Sport Unit website for details.

Sport programs

Sport and Physical Education plays an important part of the PDHPE Syllabus. Children at Lane Cove West are taking part in the Premier's Sporting Challenge.

Stage 3 students participate in PSSA (Public School Sporting Association). This is an Inter school sport program where the children compete against other schools in the region. Teams participate in, AFL, soccer and netball.

Annual carnivals are held for swimming, cross-country and athletics (8 years and older). We hold a whole school Athletics Carnival in Term 3. Every child and teacher belongs to one of the four sports houses which are named after Australian birds. Children in the same family are placed in the same house:

  • Kingfisher - Blue
  • Rosella - Red
  • Lorikeet - Green
  • Currawong - Yellow
