At Fairfield Primary School, our Grade 5 students are offered the opportunity to participate in an Alternative Sports Program. Our staff are committed to encouraging personal excellence and, as a school, we have a reputation for innovation together with strong academic and sporting traditions. We aim to provide our students with a broad range of learning and practical experiences to help them develop a strong sense of achievement and identity.


Movement is a powerful medium for learning, through which students can acquire, practise and refine personal, behavioural, social and cognitive skills. The Grade 5 Alternative Sports Program helps students to develop these skills by challenging and engaging them in new, exciting and demanding physical activities. Throughout the year, a range of comprehensive alternative sporting programs are offered on a term by term basis.


Previous Alternative Sports have included:



Hip Hop Dancing

Yoga and Meditation

Wheel Chair Sports

Circus Skills
