The True Spirit of Physie These two gorgeous 5 year old physie girls are from two clubs that have always competed against each other – Manning Valley and Taree Great Lakes.
The girls met last year and, despite joining different...
“One of the things that I love about physie is the friendships I have made over the years. Over the past couple of years my daughters Anna and Sophie have become friends with a girl named Lara from a club in another zone. They first met at an Interclub two years ago and their friendship has grown at other interclubs and at Junior Nationals last year. Last Saturday, Lara came to Anna and Sophie’s zone comp to cheer them on. Sadly, Anna and Sophie can’t do the same for Lara this weekend, so they made this video for her instead. (The rice crackers is an in joke between the girls!) All three of them love their physie and to see them enjoy the friendship and sportsmanship aspect of our sport from such a young age is just fantastic!” Sarah-Jane, Pennant Hills
This blog is a “Thank You” to all physie dads everywhere (you know who you are) who support their physie families and clubs.
So… from physie girls everywhere and their teachers:

- for being so patient at the comps…
- for running the sausage sizzle
- for setting up the jumping castle
- for selling raffle tickets
- for fixing the teachers ipod dock
- for telling me I look beautiful
- for running our fundraiser
- for coming to watch my lessons
- for videoing the Easter Show performance
- for setting out all the chairs at the comps
- for packing away all the chairs at the comps
- for putting up the decorations at the christmas party
- for having a go at doing my hair even when it’s not your ‘thing’
- for bringing back bows for our team from overseas
- for staying all day at the interclub when my section was first and mum’s was last!
- for teaching me that what matters is that I just do my best
- for supporting me and our daughters.
Here’s a message from little 6 year old Sophie Edmonds: she would like to say how much she loves her “Second Physie Mum” Miss Channy! According to Sophie’s mum, the two things about physie Sophie loves most are making new friends and running off the floor with excitement to show Miss Channy her badge!!
Physie teachers play an important role in their students lives – one of stability, caring, encouragement and empowerment. Being a positive role model is a key part of being a physie teacher – teaching girls how to work towards goals, how to win and lose and how to be good sports. And it’s not just the older teachers but all of our young up and coming teachers too.
At a club in Qld they have older physie girls who are “Physie Fairy Helpers”, assisting in classes with the 5-6 year class. The lady at the desk overhead a comment recently from a little girl who had just had a trial lesson. She says “I heard the sweetest thing sitting outside physie last night – a new little girl ran out to her mum and said “that big girl in there, the one with the wings on, she talked to me and she even knew my name!” I think this sums up just how important first impressions are but also what a huge influence our young teachers have. I just love how older girls can be such powerful and positive role models to girls so young.”
What can we say? They simply look stunning. We’re proud to reintroduce the original Bjelke-Petersen company colours of cherry red and black, keeping a strong link with our 120 year heritage, with a 21st century design for our teachers that’s practical and stylish.
The publicity ‘machine’ is still alive and well as clubs are still spreading the word about how fantastic physie is! Brisbane North club recently performed for the public, Bayside and Gosford City were feeding the masses at Bunnings and Everton Club has the right idea,
