Attadale Primary School boasts a rich history of sporting success. The school is an active member of the Melville District Interschool Sports Association (MDISSA). This is primarily aimed at the middle and upper years competing against other local schools in a range of seasonal sports across the school year. These include swimming, athletics, cross country, tennis, cricket, soccer, football and netball.
Attadale PS has enjoyed a great deal of recent sporting success most notably being crowned boys State T-20 Cricket Champions in 2018 and 2019 and in the Athletics carnival finishing as runners up in 2019, and overall winners in 2018. APS always compete strongly in the Interschool Swimming and Cross Country carnivals, winning the later in 2018. The Year 3 and 4 students also finished as runners up in the 2019 Interschool Tennis competition. We are very proud of our young competitors, especially for being gracious winners and displaying sportsmanship when participating.
All students in Years 1-6 participate in at least two hours of physical activity each week, in line with public schools policy. The school employs a Physical Education teacher ensuring that all classes receive one lesson a week of specialist sport teaching. This is supplemented with combined sport classes amongst year groups on a Friday afternoon and class teacher led daily fitness activities. Additionally, students also get the opportunity to participate in yoga, Edu-Dance, social dance (Years 5 and 6) and Bike-Ed (Years 5 and 6).
