St. Ambrose offers specialised Physical Education classes across the school for one hour per week. This is taken by specialist teacher, Mrs. Kristy Cavric and takes place on Thursdays (senior classes) and Fridays (junior classes). Students wear their P.E uniform on their specified P.E day.
Physical Education at St. Ambrose is based upon the current Victorian curriculum. The Movement and Physical Activity strand of this area of the curriculum is covered in P.E lessons from Foundation level (Prep) through to Grade Six.
St. Ambrose is an active member of the CDSSA (Cobaw District School Sports Association). We work closely with neighbouring schools in the district to provide children with the opportunity to participate and compete at school level as well as Cobaw district level. If successful, they continue on to division level before state. Students in the senior school, Grades Five and Six, compete in all of the Cobaw interschool sports and Grade Three to Six have the opportunity to compete in two competitions.
School Sports Day
We hold our own St. Ambrose school sports day in term one. Each child is allocated a ‘house’ upon enrolment and they come dressed in those colours and compete in that house for all school sports. The four houses of our school are Fatima (red), Lourdes (blue), Carmel (yellow) and Mercy (green).
