Attributes in Action

Attributes in Action 

Attributes in Action (AiA) is a program implemented to support students’ understanding about their emotional and social learning. It is connected to the Learner Profile Attributes of the PYP, and supports students in demonstrating these key skills and attitudes throughout learning and within the school yard. AiA is a tool to teach and develop skills to support students in dealing with change, challenges and uncomfortable situations as well as notice and encourage positive actions within themselves and others. 

 

How does AiA work? 

When students are demonstrating positive behaviours connected to their learning and actions, the teacher and/or students can award an AiA card. This card is worth five points. As students continue to earn more points, they can purchase rewards. These rewards are developed by students, and revisited throughout each year to ensure they are an exciting goal for students to work towards. Students can choose if they would like to contribute to whole class rewards or save their points for an individual reward. 

Swimming Program

 

Kororoit Creek Primary School has partnered with Kingswim 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 two terms of 8 swimming lessons each year, on a ratio of six or seven students to each qualified instructor. One-piece navy bathers are required for the program and may be purchased from Kingswim or any local suppliers.

Physical Education

Extra-Curricular Sporting Opportunities

Each year, students in Grades 3-6 have the opportunity to be selected for the Kororoit Creek Primary School Athletics, Swimming and X-Country teams. The selections for these teams take place at their respective 3-6 Sport Carnivals throughout the year. Students who are selected for these teams will be provided with the opportunity to train and then compete in School Sport Victoria competitions throughout the year. Students in Grade 6 are also provided with the opportunity to try out for and represent Kororoit Creek Primary School in various team sports such as AFL, Cricket, Netball, Basketball and Soccer. These teams will compete in different School Sport Victoria events throughout the school year.

Team Victoria SSV Trials

At the beginning of each school year, School Sports Victoria provide Team Victoria U12 trials for a variety of sports including Soccer, Cricket, Tennis, AFL, Basketball, Golf, Athletics and much more. Parents can nominate their child for these trials which will then go through the school. School Sports Victoria highly recommend that students of the highest level nominate for these trials in their chosen sport.
