The Physical Education program at St. Benedict’s has been
designed to be inclusive of all students. Recognising the significant health
benefits of physical activity, the program is designed to encourage maximum
participation, enjoyment and progression of physical activity skills in an
endeavour to inspire and enable lifelong participation in a variety of sporting
and recreational activities. Physical Education lessons include team building
and cooperative games; perceptual motor activities; fitness; athletics; ball
skills and recreational games, as well as, swimming lessons (conducted by
experienced professional coaches in Terms 1 or 4).

these carnivals, for additional competitive teams (based on times) are provided
with the opportunity to train in the lead up to the below events:
