Competition and SSV Selections
The school’s swim and athletics team is decided through the Swimming and Athletics Carnival. Students who come in first and second position in each category will be invited to train and compete for Kororoit Creek Primary School. These students will then compete at the SSV competitions. The selection process for other sports such as soccer, basketball and lacrosse are held as tryout sessions for students in grade five and six.
The SSV trials happen for a variety of sports including, netball, football and soccer. Parents can nominate their child for these trials and this will then go through the school. We recommended students based on the highest level they currently play in their chosen sport in order to increase success at the trials.
Kororoit Creek Primary School has partnered with King Swim in order to offer an on-site swimming program. It is part of the physical education and sports curriculum for every child (it is not an optional program).
This program provides 30 swimming lessons each year (8 per term) on a ratio of six or seven students for each qualified instructor. This program will be reported on to parents twice each year as part of the schools reporting process. One-piece navy bathers are required for the program and may be purchased from Kings or any local suppliers.
Walking School Bus
Kororoit Creek Primary School, in partnership with the City of Melton, operates a Walking School Bus to promote active transport and to assist children to walk safely to and from school. The Walking School Bus is a bus that is powered by legs and is made up of the Specialist Team members and up to 16 children. The bus walks along a set route picking up children at designated bus stops along the way.
The aims of the Walking School Bus Program are to:
- Increase the number of children walking to and from school in a safe, supervised and enjoyable manner
- Reduce car trips, traffic problems and pollution around school
- Promote traffic awareness and road safety amongst children and participants
- Raise the awareness of health and well-being and promote physical activity among children and families
- Strengthen communities within the municipality, and in particular within our school community
If your child is interested in participating with the Walking School Bus, please download and complete the following consent form and hand it in at the school office. Your child’s place on the bus will confirmed by a telephone call to you from one of our staff members.
The RACV Energy Breakthrough aims to encourage students to examine and use technology while considering its impact on the environment, and in addition, promote physical fitness. The program requires a high fitness level, commitment and endurance. The event culminates in an endurance race of 14 hours, held at Maryborough in November, in which school teams race around a criterion track against up to forty other teams. Students may also compete in other race throughout the year in Casey, Knox and Bendigo. All races are on the weekend.
Students from Grade 5 and Grade 6 tryout for a position on the team and are put through three intense stages, including a cycle test, fitness test and oral presentation. The amount of places offered each year is dependent on how many bikes are used.
In addition to the race, students are required to undertake research into design technology, go through a scrutineering session and develop a presentation. The students need to demonstrate to judges their knowledge of the vehicle, the theory behind the way it has been built and the relevance to keeping our world safe and clean.
We are excited to be apart of the RACV Energy Breakthrough for the fifth time. and to have one vehicle competing.
Detailed information on the RACV Energy Breakthrough can be found at the website https://www.racvenergybreakthrough.net/.
