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.
Primary School Sports Association (PSSA)
The school participates in the Primary School Sports Association (PSSA) competitions where students are selected to play against other schools in the area in a variety of sports.
Darcy Road Public School is fortunate to have talented, dedicated staff willing to coach the teams and has consistently achieved excellent results each year.
