Sport & Physical Education

Hello and Welcome to Bateman Sport 2019 with Miss B!

Sport in 2019 at Bateman Primary School is going to be all about giving things a go, challenging ourselves and most importantly having fun! Students will have the opportunity to learn about a number of different sports including cricket, basketball, badminton, curling, European Handball, AFL and many more.

Sport, this year, will also include some exciting out of school events such as swimming and athletic carnivals as well as a chance to compete against other schools in interschool events such as Eagles Cup and Cricket carnivals. I cannot wait to see all of the students out there proudly wearing the orange and black.

Athletics Time

With the Athletics Carnival quickly approaching, I thought this would be a good time to update everyone on what is going on.

The carnival this year will be very similar to what has occurred in the past. The changes that have been made are minor and have been done to assist in the carnival running smoothly and become more aligned to our interschool competition.

Below, you can see what each year group will be participating in this year.

Please note that for students to be selected for an event, they must have tried out and successfully been chosen. The only event that a student is automatically selected for is a running race.

Each student from Year 1 to Year 6 will be competing in a minimum of three events (running race and two team games).


Kindy and Pre-primary: 50m race and one team game.

Year One and Year Two: 60m race, corner spry, leader bean bag, flag relay, tunnel ball and shuttle relay.

Year Three and Year Four: Long Jump, Throws, 400m, 200m and 80m race, pass ball, leader ball, tunnel ball, flag relay and circular relay.

Year Five and Year Six: Long Jump, Triple Jump, Throws, 400m, 200m and 100m race, pass ball, leader ball, tunnel ball, flag relay and circular relay.

If you have any questions or queries, please do come and see me. I am very excited for this years carnival and I can not wait to see all of the students trying their best!
