  School Closures

Every class in St. Oliver’s strives to reach 60 minutes of timetabled PE per week. This may be a combination of PE in the Halla, outside or in the classroom.

The PE curriculum is divided into 6 strands:

  • Athletics
  • Dance
  • Gymnastics
  • Games
  • Outdoor and Adventure activities
  • Aquatics

This year's priority PE strand is Athletics. We are also prioritising four fundamental movement skills this school year - Running, Walking, Skipping and Hopping.

In the first term of school, all of the fifth classes got to go swimming to the Gleneagle for 6 weeks! The fourth classes went in term 2!


In November and December 2022, Hayley and her team came to our school for 5 weeks, and every class received 5 sessions of gymnastics!
