Sport and Physical Education

The Sport and Physical Education program at St Francis Xavier is developed to give each child the opportunity to participate in weekly physical education and fitness sessions with the focus on developing their fundamental motor skills to enable lifelong participation in physical activity. 

From Prep through to Year 6, students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sporting activities, both competitive and non-competitive.

Students participate in weekly Physical Education lessons and Sport sessions. Morning Fitness sessions are held three times a week from 8.50 am to 9.00 am to encourage students to maintain a healthy lifestyle and give themselves the best opportunity to be alert and ready for their day ahead. Students have access to the great facilities at St Francis Xavier including a basketball court, netball court, multi-games area and a grass oval.
