Grade 3, 4, 5 & 6’s are currently undergoing fitness testing as part of the Physical Education program. The aim of the program is for children to make their own assessment on areas of fitness they are doing well in, and areas of fitness they need improvement in. The students will use the data collected to create their own personal fitness goals. They should start working towards reaching these goals over the holiday period.
The areas of fitness the children are currently being tested on are:
aerobic fitness -beep test,
Muscular strength endurance-basketball throw & maximum curl-ups (sit-ups)
Joint and muscle flexibility (sit and reach test).
