Health and Physical Education plays a big part in the lives of our students and community here in Karratha.
This 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.
Is an AFL competition for senior students and Baynton West Primary School’s interschool contribution to the Karratha network. Boys and girls teams from Baynton West PS train and play hard to participate in this fun filled day. More information will come home this year for student’s who will be participating.
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 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 work hard to bring home the shields in a range of sports played at this carnival.
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.
