Physical Education

Each class at the school, from Prep through to Year Six, receives one half-hour lesson with the Physical Education specialist each week. These lessons vary in content from swimming in the hotter months to fundamental movement activities, ball skills associated with games and sports, cross country and fitness activities, fundamental gymnastics, bush dancing and track and field activities during the cooler months.

Inter-house sport

The school is divided into four houses which provides for friendly inter-house competitions in the three sports of swimming, cross-country and athletics.  House teachers and house captains take great pride in developing the friendly yet competitive atmosphere at the carnivals.  These inter-house carnivals are held in the school grounds at appropriate times to incorporate skills learnt during their weekly Physical Education lessons.  All children are encouraged to participate to give their respective houses the opportunity to become champion house for the year in that sport.

 

Inter-school sport

All Year Five and Six students are encouraged to participate in the inter-school sports competitions run by the Toowoomba Primary School Sports Association. The competitions are conducted on a Friday afternoon in three of the four terms each year. 

Boys get to choose from the following sports: 

Term One – AFL, Softball and Tennis. 

Term Two  – Rugby League, Soccer and Hockey. 

Term Four – Cricket, Volleyball and Touch. 

 

Girls can choose from the following sports.

Term One – Touch, Girls Cricket and Tennis. 

Term Two  – Netball, Soccer and Hockey. 

Term Four – Softball, Volleyball and AFL. 

 

Within the structure of these competitions, schools can nominate for 'A' division, which accommodates the higher skilled players  and 'B' division which allows for maximising  participation.  

Children who are above average in skill and attitude, are also  given the opportunity to trial in their selected sports, with the intention of making higher representative honours.  Toowoomba Zone or District teams send selected students to Regional Carnivals with the sole aim of representing our Region, Darling Downs, at State carnivals.  Rangeville State School has over the years provided many students to these teams and even provided a number of students into State teams for National carnivals.
