The PDHPE staff are looking forward to engaging students in both theory and practical lessons this year. We would like to remind all students in Years 7-10 about our school policy of bringing and wearing correct PDHPE uniform for all practical lessons. This uniform can be purchased from the uniform shop or arranged through the school canteen. The PE uniform is made up of a dark blue polo shirt with the school emblem, light blue on the sides and blue piping around the collar and navy blue shorts with the school emblem. In winter, students may be able to wear navy blue tracksuit pants. TSP shirts can be worn on Tuesdays (for sport) or for PE lessons. Students are unable to wear the light blue school shirt for practical lessons. The TSP Rugby League training uniform is NOT to be worn to school as uniform; it can be worn for TSP practical uniforms, TSP sessions or PDHPE practical lessons only.



Sport: Our sport coordinator, Mr Benham, has spent a significant amount of time allocating students into their selected sports, organising venues, buses and developing a staff roster. Tuesday sport is now up and running and students are reminded the buses that take students to sport leave at 12:15pm (half way through lunch). If students have not selected a sport for Term 1, they should see Mr Benham at the sport window in the PDHPE Staffroom to make their choice. Buses cost $5.00 and some venues have additional charges involved. Students must make sure they have their correct money for sport with them on Tuesday afternoons.



Carnivals: The WCS Swimming Carnival was held on Friday 10th February. Congratulations to all students who participated, especially those that achieved their personal best. Our Athletics Carnival will also be held this Term on Friday 24th March (Week 8) at Woongarrah Athletics Track. Further details about this event will be distributed closer to the event. TSP: Students who are involved in the TSP program are reminded that the first five weeks of 2017 will be a trial period and they will need to ensure that they are meeting requirements in relation to participation and behaviour. Students who have missed the trials or are new to WCS must see the TSP coordinator Mr Sawyer if they wish to be involved in the program. Last year's December uniform order has arrived and students are to report to the PDHPE staff room to collect apparel items. An order will be placed in April for students that missed the December order or who are new to the program.
