Lucas Primary School takes pride in providing all students with a one hour weekly Physical Education lesson taught by a specialist Health and Physical Education teacher. We have excellent new facilities including a full court indoor gym that allows for wet weather Physical Education lessons. Outside we have two hard courts equipped for basketball, netball, tennis and volleyball as well as two large grass ovals.

Following the Victorian Curriculum, we have a focus on developing students’ motor and interpersonal skills. Our program heavily focuses on cooperation, teamwork and problem solving and incorporates our school values of respect, responsibility, excellence and growth. In the junior classes our focus is on developing students’ fundamental motor skills, coordination and balance. In the senior years our focus is on applying skills and strategies in sports and activities as well as promoting lifelong physical activity.

Students also have the opportunity to be involved in external clinics and to represent their school in inter school sport including swimming, athletics and cross country. In Term 3 each year, all students participate in swimming lessons at Shayne Reese Swimming.
