There is a sport of choice for every child at PNPS. We focus on participation and enjoyment. Our inclusive approach ensures that every child participates fully, regardless of their sporting abilities.
PNPS encourages families to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Our Heart Foundation approved tuck shop provides healthy food. Our children are also encouraged to have a healthy snack on the go, in between lessons and to have a bottle of water at their desks.
We like our children to keep moving! Teachers schedule brief walks around the field between classes and every child will have at least one hour of physical education per week. In summer, our school pool is used for swimming lessons and water-related exercises. This is why we ask new parents to ensure that their children are water safe when they start school. In winter, we use our school hall for balance and locomotive exercises and the field for striking, fielding and invasion games.
