Physical Education

The Basin Primary School places a strong emphasis on Physical and Sport Education. We believe that enjoyment of regular exercise and development of physical fitness assists children with their learning in all areas.


All students enjoy two physical education lessons per week. Children in Grades 3/4/5/6 have the opportunity to utilise the basic skills they have developed in the early years through our grade 3/4 and 5/6 Sport programs. These children are allocated an extra hour per week where they participate in modified games and sports. Inter-School sport is BIG at The Basin Primary School. Our sporting teams not only have the opportunity to compete at District level, but they frequently progress to contest Division and even State finals. Our swimmers, athletes and cross country runners also have the opportunity to follow a similar path.


The Basin Primary School has a rich history of success on the sporting fields. We believe that this success is a result of the comprehensive sport program, the passion and talents of our students and the wonderful support of our entrie school community.
