Health & Physical Education


The Mission of the Physical Education Department at Pakenham Springs Primary School is to provide educational excellence to all students by providing a safe, non-threatening, positive environment. Providing an opportunity to cooperate and acquire knowledge, physical and social skills, fitness and attitudes is essential to healthy lifestyles.

We endeavour to give all students the opportunity to learn the essential skills and knowledge for them to become respectful and informed members of the local and global community.


Media Arts



In Media Arts we strive to excite, inspire and motivate students to communicate and respond creatively to the ever changing world of media through use of audio visual and print media. We educate students to become critical and informed consumers of personal, local and World Media.

Japanese learning is geared towards opening little minds up to a bigger world. The central aim is to inspire excitement and wonder through new experiences and to develop literacy through the interactive, purposeful practise of language skills.
