Physical Education

Physical Education is considered to be a vehicle for the education of the child - physically, developmentally, emotionally and intellectually - using experiences centred on movement. These experiences are focused largely upon the natural and instinctive movement seen in active play or recreational life.

The school has extensive playing fields that are frequently used by the local community as well as by Sele students. We have floodlit netball/tennis courts which enable fixtures to proceed throughout the dark winter months and these are in constant use by local football and netball clubs.

The well-equipped gymnasium is also a dual-use facility. The Sele School has a fitness suite which is used across the whole school; the cardiovascular equipment helps develop the fitness of our younger years and the resistance machines are introduced from Year 10.

The school maintains close links with many specialist local sports clubs and the students are encouraged to join these to gain additional expert coaching. The Bengeo Tigers Football Club is located at The Sele School site and provides considerable support to the football programme across all Key Stages.

The department is very keen to maintain good relationships with parents who are encouraged to support their children at fixtures and are often involved in assisting with officiating. There is an extensive extra-curricular programme and students are provided with the opportunity to gain district, regional and even national honours.
