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.

Carnivals

Mosman Public School holds three major sporting carnivals each year for students.

* A Swimming Carnival is held early in Term 1 for students in Years 3-6.

* A Cross Country Carnival is held in Term 1 or Term 2 for students in Years 3-6.

* An Athletics Carnival (track and field events) is held in Term 3 for students in Years 3-6.

Successful students at our school carnivals go on to represent Mosman Public School at the North Shore Zone Carnivals. Students will then compete for the opportunity to progress to Regional and State Carnivals.

 

In addition, we also hold a carnival for students in Years K-2. This day is held during Term 3 and the focus is on participation, development of fundamental movement skills and most importantly having fun.

 

PSSA Sport

During Terms 2 and 3, students in Years 5 and 6 at Mosman Public School are given the opportunity to participate either in inter-school competitions or in a range of non-competitive sporting activities at school each Friday. Mosman Public School is involved in inter-school competitions in netball and soccer.

Trials for inter-school teams are held during Term 1.

All students and parents required to sign and return a Code of Conduct form outlining expected behaviour at matches.

Students not involved in inter-school sports programs, participate in other sport programs such as cricket (run by Cricket NSW) and basketball.
