Students - Sports/Health

Our comprehensive sports program involves students attending dedicated lessons for one period per week. There is a focus on Fundamental Movement skills in the junior years, which are built upon as older students learn the rules, skills and strategies needed to play a wide range of sports. The emphasis is on participation, teamwork and personal goal setting. We have Annual Faction Athletic, Cross Country and Swimming Carnivals.  These events are then celebrated with an Interschool Carnival for each where the students who placed well in individual championship events have the opportunity to represent Hannans PS against local schools within the Goldfields District.

Swimming Lessons are also held each year for the whole school.  This is an endorsed Education Department directive and considered to be compulsory for all students to attend and gain these vital and life-saving skills.  The lessons take place over a two-week period and students attend each day, travelling to and from the Goldfields Oasis.  Schools are on a rotational roster for lessons to ensure each school has their turn during different seasons.  Our swimming lessons this year are in Term 2.

Year 5 and 6 students have the chance throughout the year to compete in Eagles and Fever Cup events together with both Winter and Summer Lightning Carnivals.  We also have regular visits and clinics throughout the year from organisations such as Rugby WA, the Goldfields Giants and W.A.C.A.
