Physical and outdoor education

Children will attend physical education lessons on a regular basis.

The early years of this program at Thomas Mitchell are designed to develop skills and familiarise all children with a wide range of equipment.

Activities children participate in include: dance, movement, gymnastics and ball handling. Older children are involved in interschool sport including swimming and athletics carnivals.

At Thomas Mitchell our gymnasium is extensively used during sport sessions.

Other outdoor facilities include an articial turf play area and soccer pitch, a running track, basketball and netball courts, covered sandpit and two playgrounds.
