Strive To Achieve

Sport

Sport has always been one of the strengths of the school. All children who are turning 8 years or older are given the opportunity to represent in numerous sports. The school participates in most competitions offered by the Castle Hill Zone and in selected State competitions. These promote equal opportunities for all. The school is fortunate to have first class facilities and coaches, supported by willing and qualified parents.



SportsPro Sport Program

The SportsPro PDHPE and Gymnastics program is currently taught at Jasper Road Public School across all classes K-6 by "outside providers".

   
The syllabus based program meets the requirements for the stages and covers all aspects of gymnastics, athletics and fitness.

The children are actively involved and enjoy a variety of experiences. All students are allocated a 10 week block throughout the year for which their parents are asked to pay $40.00.

   


House Sport

Friday School Sport consists of six or seven groups of children. Each group is made up of students from all grades and rotate on a weekly basis.

Each week the students practise various skills including running, skipping, dodging, throwing, catching, batting, base running and target or goal shooting. A variety of equipment is used including balls, bats, bean bags, hoops, bases, vortex and goal rings and nets.

These skills are then used to play lead up games such as "beat the ball" leading into T-Ball. Other activities lead into games such as Oz Tag-Tip, Newcombe Ball, Netball, Cricket and Hockey. Captain Ball and Tunnel Ball are also practised.

Wheelchair Sport


Jasper Road is an integrated school where all children are given the opportunity to reach their full potential at their level. We therefore cater for all our students with a physical disability and run our own wheelchair sport activities.

Children love to compete and those in wheelchairs and walkers are no exception. We have developed a huge range of games and activities specifically designed for those in wheelchairs. Some of our favourites are sitting volleyball, cricket, basketball, hockey, wheelchair soccer, boccia and many more.

Students in our Support Unit also attend the Northcott Inter-school Athletics Carnival where they can compete against other students with similar disabilities. International Disability Awareness Day is celebrated with a Boccia competition with Crestwood High School's Support Unit.
