Inter-School Sport:

In 2018, Grade 6 students will participate in Interschool Sports each week throughout Terms 1 & 2. All Grade 6 students will have the opportunity to nominate their preferred sport/s and will be asked to participate in at least one of their nominated Interschool Sport preferences during Term 1 or 2. The Grade 5 students will participate as substitutes and back-up team members on a rotational basis. We have a high standard of behaviour at FPS and we expect all Interschool Sport team members to uphold the school values within the classroom, school and community should they wish to participate in Interschool Sports.
