At Dalby State School, each class has Physical Education Lessons organised and delivered by a specially trained Physical Education teacher. Students from Prep to Year 6 undertake an 8 week swimming program in Term 4. As well as swimming skills, the program teaches the children basic survival and safety skills. Swimming is invoiced in Term 3 and is on a user pay basis.
As well as participating in games and skilled structured lessons, students have the opportunity to compete in Cross Country, Athletics and Swimming Carnivals throughout the year. Students also have the opportunity to be selected to represent the school, Bunya District, Darling Downs and Queensland School Sport via a series of sport specific trials. Before school and lunch time coaching is available through the Sporting Schools program. Other competitions available to students during the years include the Dalby AFL schools competition, Development Cup Rugby League, All School’s Touch Football, Netball and Rugby Union.
Our school values the Friday Sport Program with classes from Years 3-6 participating in organised activities such as Canoeing, Archery, Lawn bowls, Gymnastics, Golf, Touch Football, Mini Soccer, Rugby 7s, Cricket and various Tabloid activities. The specialist PE Teacher also co-ordinates visits and clinics by sport specific Development Officers as well as the Jump Rope for Heart program. The PE Teacher organises and co-ordinates the annual Tallebudgera School Camp which re-enforces a variety of learning experiences and skills that are implemented into the Physical Education Program. Parents are advised that the Department of Education does not have Personal Accident Insurance cover for students.
