Personal development, health and physical education
Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.
According to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), students are expected to participate in PDHPE for between 1.5 and 2.5 hours per week in Kindergarten to Year 6.
PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.
Rainbow Street Public School is a member of the Eastern Suburbs Primary Schools Sports Association (ESPSSA).
Students participate in inter-school competitions in softball/teeball and cricket in summer and netball and soccer in winter.
Sudents can also be selected to represent our school (and then district, region and state) in swimming, cross country running and athletics.
