The western Sydney PDHPE Network is open to teachers from all schools teaching the K-6 syllabus in the local government areas of Blacktown, Cumberland, Parramatta and The Hills. Each term the PDHPE Network offers a 1.5 hour training session for teachers which is accredited at proficient teacher level by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA).

Local schools host the PDHPE Network which is coordinated by the Live Life Well @ School team. Topics are usually linked to teaching physical education and often include teaching Fundamental Movement Skills, Gymnastics and Dance.

All participants receive a certificate upon completion of this training. Written feedback from attendees is used to determine choices for future sessions.

The network is all about professional development and sharing experiences.

 1 Little Athletics 

Monday 24th February 2020


Join us for this largely practical session for teachers at Yates Avenue Public School (Dundas), introducing you to some Fundamentals of Athletics that you can incorporate into your PDHPE program. The workshop is led by Darren Wensor from Little Athletics who will breakdown into bite sized chunks, the basics of how to teach and develop, running, jumping and throwing. We will look at associated coaching cues and apply games to make all the skills accessible and fun for your students to learn and engage with.

The aim of this session is in line with Little Athletics mission “To develop children of all abilities by promoting positive attitudes and a healthy lifestyle through family and community involvement in athletic activities.” You will also take away a games booklet from the session, a simple reference guide to make the session easily replicable.

The session will also provide the opportunity to learn more about the Little Athletics Program for Schools (LAPS) program, all Little Athletics Associations aim to deliver an outstanding educational athletic program that provides a high quality experience to every participant.
