During 2017 the Baynton West Health and Physical Education Department will be implementing The Australian Curriculum Phase 2 Health and Physical Education program. Our students, community and fellow colleagues will no doubt experience many successes and wonderful achievements with this new program.
The year promises to be full of highlights with the following planned:
Cycle to School Day.
This annual term 1 event always brings out the best in our students. Lead up road safety lessons culminate in a safe and fun event where students get to experience a number of different cycle and skate games during lunch and recess.
Into its 4th year of existence and Baynton West Primary Schools interschool contribution to the Karratha network. Boys and girls teams from Baynton West PS trained hard and played hard in 2015 to win both boys and girls competitions. In 2016 the Girls team were victorious and then in 2017 the Baynton Boys won with the girls team placing 3rd.
Healthy Eating Program.
Children will be taught about nutrition, the healthy food plate and healthy snacking. Students will put their knowledge into action by making a healthy lunch and a healthy snack. The program will conclude with a Nude Food day to demonstrate how we can eat more healthily and also minimise our waste.
Faction and Interschool Cross Country Events.
Term 2 is all about distance running and building aerobic fitness for the 2 big cross country running events. The Faction Cross Country is a true community event with many parents supporting and helping out with the running of the day. The children are just amazing on the day with most setting personal best times, running distances they aren’t accustomed to. The community fun run is always well supported by both the students and community alike.
The Interschool Cross Country result was spectacular in 2015 with BWPS winning by a substantial margin. We won again in 2017 with all the students demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship on the day.
The Winter Carnival.
This interschool, multi-sport event is hugely anticipated within the community. Our Yr 5 and 6 students will participate in a number of team sports at the Leisureplex. BWPS won basketball and soccer last year so hopefully we can win even more sports in 2016.
Faction Athletics and Interschool Athletics Carnivals.
These 2 events are the athletic showpiece events for the school and the community. Beautiful weather, high athletic prowess, great sportsmanship and a real community feel make these events successful. BWPS won the Interschool Athletics in 2015 so the culture for success has been laid for future years. In 2017 we won the Gregory Shield for the school who is the most improved! We came 3rd overall which was a great achievement.
Jump Rope For Heart.
Baynton West PS raised over $1000 for the Heart Foundation through the program last year. For 2 weeks in term 4 children at BWPS will participate in skipping lessons and activities to increase their fitness, awareness of heart disease and to just have fun!
Baynton West Ripper Skippers.
This group gives up numerous lunch times to practise new skills, routines and moves to perform at various school events including School Open Night and End of Year Concert. We think all who watch them are in awe of their abilities.
