Students are encouraged to have an active and healthy lifestyle at Yanginanook. During recess and lunch breaks children make use of the mini sports oval, climbing frames and sandpit. Children enjoy playing a variety of team games that they instigate altogether – including cricket, soccer, chasing and wide games.
Our multi-age approach encourages all children to play together. Through these multi-age games the children learn to:
- negotiate and respect each others’ point of view
- accommodate and accept differing abilities
- lead and nurture others
Each term our students actively participate in a diverse range of sporting and outdoor activities within the school grounds and in off-site locations. Activities including tennis, swimming, surfing, bowling, gymnastics, Little Athletics, Aussie Gems and Aerial Silks are a part of our sports education program.
