Physical Education

At Berwick Fields Primary School we take great pride in our Physical Education program. Our Program is developed sequentially from Prep – six and encompasses the Victorian Essential Learning Standards.


The health program is implemented in the classroom through an integrated approach or as a single topic. The program is supported by the Life Education Van and enhanced by visiting speakers.

Physical Education

The physical education program is managed by trained physical education teachers and supported by the classroom teachers, in line with Department of Education’s recommendations regarding time allocations.

In physical education sessions, children participate in a comprehensive skills based program that provides them with a sound base for participation in future sporting activities, and in the development of a healthy lifestyle. Areas of the program are: ball skills, movement education, athletics, cross country, swimming, fitness, minor games and major games.
