Wednesday 14th of September is National Health and Physical Education Day. Xavier High School will be celebrating this day on Friday 16th of September.
In celebrating this day there will be an ‘active wear’ casual clothes day this Friday the 16th of September with gold coin donation by all Students and Staff.
All proceeds towards this event will go to the Albury Regional Cancer Centre for Sunshine Week.
The same rules and regulations around appropriate dress code strictly apply. Visit here for a refresher on these guidelines.
The nationwide event is designed to raise awareness of the value of HPE in the Australian Curriculum and highlight the important role it plays in the learning and development of children, the benefit to all schools, and the educative value to the wider community.
This year’s day will focus in on encouraging communities to get involved as part of a theme celebrated over three consecutive years from 2014 – 2016 being; Good for Children, Good for Schools, Good for Communities.
Teachers and Principals were encouraged to get involved by holding activities or events during the week or on the day itself, while parents will be urged to get involved and commit to a ‘Parent Pledge’ to see them encouraging physical activity at home.
On Friday the 16th our Students at Xavier High School will be involved in various activities around the School throughout the day.
A poster competition is also being held for Students to submit their best ‘National Health and Physical Education Day 2016’. All posters need to be submitted to each Students P.E Teacher before Friday the 16th of September.
We look forward to sharing more information and photographs on the day!
