Teaching & Learning

Sports Programme

A PE teacher is employed to run the Physical Education program for each class one hour a week.

St Rose staff encourage students to be active and enjoy sports as part of the curriculum. Each class is involved in weekly sporting activities which vary each term.

Students are grouped together in house groups.

The Sports houses are:
Rose Red        Xavier Blue        Lima Green        Grady Yellow

Students are allocated a House and siblings are kept together.
Students will retain this House colour for their entire time at school.

The annual Swimming Carnival is held early in the first term of school. Students from Year 2 to Year 6 may enter a variety of races suitable for their age. All students are encouraged to participate in the carnival. Outstanding sporting performances may allow a student to participate in the Peninsula Catholic Schools Carnival, The Broken Bay Diocesan Carnival and Polding InterDiocesan Carnival.

The school also holds an Athletics Carnival each year and students from Kindergarten to Year 6 are all encouraged to participate and enjoy the fun. The carnival has short, middle and long distance races, field activities (e.g. long jump, shot put), and novelty activities throughout the day. Students are encouraged to support their house through cheering and wearing their house colour. Students that perform at a high level may be eligible to compete in the Peninsula Catholic Schools Carnival, The Broken Bay Diocesan Carnival and Polding InterDiocesan Carnival.

The school also participates in Peninsula Gala Days for Primary classes, which includes Netball, Rugby League, Eagle Tag, Soccer, AFL and Cricket.

Cross Country is held mid year for children aged 8 years onward.
All children Kindergarten to Year Six participate in a ten week Martial Arts program each year.
Children are encouraged to participate in sport within the school as well as through sporting clubs.
