Sport and Physical Education (PE) are important components of a well-rounded education for all Primary students. PE is taught to all our Primary classes in order to provide students with the enthusiasm to maintain a healthy lifestyle into adulthood. Activities included in the curriculum are designed to promote physical fitness, to instil knowledge and understanding of rules, concepts, and strategies. Students learn to work both as individuals and in a wide variety of competitive group sports, and discover that they can glorify God by developing strong, healthy bodies and good sportsmanship. Active, healthy kids are better learners. Movement serves to energise and activate the body, improve focus and develop the brain. Physical activities develop fundamental movement skills and promote positive social interactions, increasing students’ competency and self-esteem.
In addition to PE, NCC Primary students also have the opportunity to participate in SCISSA sports against other Sunshine Coast independent schools, including Gymnastics, Soccer, Basketball, Netball, Rugby Union, Touch Football, AFL and Flipperball (junior Water Polo). Students learn fundamental game skills and contribute to growing a healthy school spirit culture. At the core of our Primary SCISSA Program is a team-sports ethos, promoting physical health and social interaction, and providing every student with the opportunity to represent the school.
Our excellent Sport facilities include the multisport Health & Fitness Centre featuring a rock-climbing wall, multiple ball courts and a grandstand; and a dedicated Primary School Oval.
