Physical Education Program

 
Graceville State School considers the participation in sporting activities to be an integral part of the development of our students to becoming lifelong learners. The values that our students gain from participating in sporting activities are immeasurable and invaluable. We offer our students a wide variety of sporting experiences through our Physical Education curriculum and our participation in the West Taylor Bridge Sporting District interschool sports fixtures.
The West Taylor Bridge District offers two sporting seasons throughout the year. Each season involves a 10 week period of sports of a wide variety. Students can elect to participate in a range of sports including cricket, netball, softball, water polo, basketball, soccer, touch football and AFL.  All children in Years 5 and 6 are encouraged to participate in these fixtures to develop sportsmanship and commitment to a team environment.
The representative pathway for our students through to the Met West Regional Sporting trials and State and National Trials is through the Eastern Taipans District. All children in the upper primary grades are given the chance to attend these district trials and to compete at the higher levels offered across a number of different sports.
