Physical fitness and wellbeing is an important part of a child’s overall development. In fact, healthy amounts of exercise can prove beneficial to academic learning.
At Nairne School, we employ a full-time physical education teacher to look after the physical wellbeing of our students from reception, right through to year 7. Using a mix of games and sporting activities, we aim to develop students’ cooperation and collaboration skills, along with a healthy attitude toward competition as they get a bit older. This will help build positive self-esteem and team-working capabilities which will benefit students throughout their lives.
Art classes allow students to express their creativity and develop their imagination, which can promote critical thinking and problem solving– essential life skills. With a specialist art centre at the school, available 2days a week, students from reception to year 7 have the opportunity to explore their creative side through a skills based art program.
Science and Technology
In 2015 Nairne School will be trialling a specialist science and technology program two days a week in a dedicated science room. Using the Australian Curriculum Science Program, students across the school will be able to further their studies in science and technology.
