Personal development, health and physical education

Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.

PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.

Sport and fitness

Berry Public School students actively participate in 150 minutes of planned fitness and sport every week including swimming, gymnastics, dance and fundamental skill development.

We compete in many local and state sporting competitions including rugby league, football, tennis, netball and cricket. We also compete strongly in athletics, cross country and swimming carnivals.

Talented athletes have access to a wide range of additional opportunities through representative sports run by the NSW Primary School Sports Association (NSWPSSA). 

 

Dance

All students in Year 5 and 6 participate in a dance program with a specialist instructor. The dance lessons culminate in a performance at our open day and the annual Year 6 graduation dance.
