Physical and Health Education play an important role at Peter Carnley Anglican Community School. Educating students about the importance of leading a healthy, active and well-balanced lifestyle is at the forefront of our teaching and the focus of all the sporting opportunities on offer at the School.

Students from Kindergarten to Year 12 undertake two periods of Physical Education a week and students from Kindergarten to Year 10 also have a weekly Health Education lesson.  This aligns with the Western Australian Curriculum requirements.

The Health Education programme focuses on the topics of Wellness, Drug Education, Lifestyle Choices, Safety, and Growth and Development.  Students continue to learn these topics throughout their schooling with increasing complexity and information as they get older.

Students in Early Learning complete a Fundamental Movement Skills programme that aims to give students the necessary skills to undertake important physical movements.  They then graduate to more game play and modified sports in the junior years, preparing the students to use their skills in a wide variety of sports in Senior School.

Senior School Physical Education aims to develop the students’ physical, interpersonal, self-management, communication and decision making skills that they can apply to all activities and sports.  Some of the sports covered in Senior School include: Cricket, Softball, Netball, Basketball, AFL, Soccer, Volleyball, Softcrosse, Touch Rugby, European Handball, American Football, Table Tennis, Badminton, Floorball, and Athletics.

To support the Physical Education programmes and create healthy competition amongst the Houses, there are three Interhouse carnivals throughout the year including Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.

PCACS prides itself on being a member of the Kwinana Schools Sports Association (KSSA) in Junior School and the Associated and Catholic Colleges (ACC) in the Senior School.  These organisations provide opportunities for students to be involved in Interschool carnivals throughout the year including Athletics, Swimming, Cross Country and Lightning Carnivals.

PCACS is also a member of the sub association of ACC called Rockingham-Kwinana Associated Schools (RKAS).  Students are selected to compete in an after school sports programme in a variety of sports extending from Year 7 to Year 12  This is an exciting programme that is developing every year. The current RKAS sports offered are:

There is a small but growing number of opportunities for students to be involved in PCACS teams including AFL for girls and boys, Cricket and Hockey, this is subject to student numbers and availability of coaches.  There are also a number of teams in the Rockingham Districts Netball Association and Rockingham Basketball and Recreation Association competitions. This competition is run by parents and has been a great success, see the Netball and Basketball tabs on this website for more information.

As the School continues to grow and develop, the sporting programmes, teams, carnivals and opportunities will expand and flourish.  We look forward with great anticipation to what the future holds for sport at PCACS.

Peter Carnley Basketball club started two seasons ago because we had a few children playing in other school teams and we felt that with the amazing gym facilities we have it would be a shame not to utilize them for PCACS Basketball teams.  

We have 7 teams so far: U8 boys, U10 boys, U12 boys, U14 boys, U16 boys, U16 girls and U18s girls. We would not have been able to start the Basketball club if it wasn’t for the ongoing support and commitment of parents and teachers.  Each team is coached by a parent.  

Our view for moving forward is for the older children to provide a mentoring role via coaching for younger players joining the club and for the club’s teams to grow in strength over the years. We look forward to seeing all the children enjoy playing a team sport and representing PCACS at RKAS and other events in basketball We are always looking for more players but, unfortunately, we require teams to provide their own coach and managers.  

Please join the PCACS Basketball Facebook page (which is a closed group) or email if you wish to register a team. We train after school on school grounds and then play either Tuesday, Thursday or Friday nights at Mike Barnett Stadium in Rockingham. 

In just a season the improvements of all team participants have been amazing, and it is so rewarding to see the smiles on their faces when they leave the court, regardless of a win or loss.  

On behalf of the Peter Carnley Anglican Community School Netball Club committee welcome to our returning students to the 2022 new school year and to new students and families to the PCACS community.

Netball is returning in 2022

Is your daughter interested in representing PCACS in the local netball competition in 2022?

PCACS teams play through the Rockingham Districts Netball Association at Mike Barnett Centre in Rockingham on Saturdays with the season running from around April to September. Saturday games run for about an hour, while training is also approximately one hour at a time slot to be determined by the coach of each team.

PCACS teams comprise students from most year levels from the younger Net Set Go players up to our oldest Junior Open teams. The age groups for 2022 season are -

  • Grade Player's year of birth
  • Set 2014/2015
  • Go 2012/2013
  • 12s 2010/2011
  • 13s 2009
  • 14s 2008
  • 15s 2007
  • 17s 2005/2006

Teams can be formed with a minimum of 8 players. Last season we had nine teams across all age groups.

IMPORTANT NOTE - Teams can not go ahead without a coach in place.

All teams must have a parent/carer (or sometimes older student coaches) volunteering their time every week of the season and those training weeks beforehand to get our teams ready. Putting it simply - if there's no coach there can be no team.

The aim of PCACS netball is to get out on the court, learn new skills, build teamwork and resilience and have fun while maybe winning a few games.
