SEPEP - Sport Education Physical Education Program
The Physical Education Program at Sydenham-Hillside Primary School aims to develop leadership skills as well as Physical skills through the Sport Education Physical Education Program (SEPEP).
Students in Years 3 – 6 take ownership of SEPEP in a chosen sport. Students actively coordinate all aspects of these lessons, including the setting up and packing up of equipment, organising fixtures of play, calculating the points for the competition in the form of a ladder, designing encouragement awards/certificates, providing a Tribunal where all students recognise the rules and consequences and are actively involved in the implementation of these consequences. Literacy, Numeracy and ICT skills are also utilised while conducting this program. Students embrace the opportunity to take control while the Teacher observes and assesses the student’s ability to take on responsibility and work cooperatively with other class members.
