Physical Education & Sport

At Bethany we believe that Physical Education and Sport plays a key role in the wellbeing of students. Our school curriculum provides students with opportunities to develop fundemental motor skills which form the basis of all sports. As these skills develop they are able to apply them to various sports.

The school draws on the expertise of various sporting organisations to compliment the skill development of our students. We also provide students with elite skill pathways to represent the school through interschool competitions and tournaments in various sports.

 

Bethany Athletics Carnival

Bethany's Athletics Carnival is held annually at the Werribee Athletics Track.  The school has four sport teams; Conifer, Jacaranda, Waratah and Wattle. These teams compete for the Junior and Senior athletics shields by participating in running throwing and jumping athletic and novelty events.

Athletics Squad

  

 

Students who compete at an exceptionally high standard at our athletics carnival are selected to represent Bethany at the district athletics.

We are very proud of all our Bethany representatives, and excited to call our 2018 Athletics Team the Truganina Distric Champions, defending the title won in 2016 and 2017. We also congratulate our students who have progressed onto regional and state level competition. 

 

Cross Country

During Term 2 the students in Year 4, 5 and 6 are invited to try out for the Bethany Cross Country Team.  This opportunity allows our most talented long distance runners to respresent the school at a highly competitive event, and strive to be selected to represent our district at the next stage.  In 2018 the Bethany Cross Country Team competed strongly in the Truganina District event finishing 2nd in the overall team competition. 

Interschool Sport

 

Term 2 provides students from the Leadership Centre the opportunity to participate in the Truganina District Interschool Sports Gala Day.  In 2018 Bethany students represented the school with outstanding sportsmanship, skill, leadership and determination in soccer, football and netball.  All teams progressed to the grand final with the soccer, football and girls’ netball teams winning the championship and progressing into the wyndham regional finals.

At the Wyndham finals our football and soccer teams were once again successful qualifying them for the Western Metropolitan District Championships where both teams displayed skill and teamwork.

Hoop Time Basketball

Bethany's basketballers represent our school at the Werribee Hoop Time round robin tournaments.  These tournaments provide our Year 3-6 students the opportunity to play in a fun yet challenging competition . The program culminates at the end of each year with Regional Finals and a State Grand Final. In 2018 we are proud to be represented at the Year 3/4 and 5/6 regional finals.
