Health & Physical Education

The Health and Physical Education learning area provides students with an understanding of current health issues and the skills needed to participate confidently in sport and recreational activities. 


Physical Education


Physical Education is focussed on learning in, through and about movement. Students develop physical skills, strategy, critical thinking and knowledge of how the body moves and responds to movement. The range of sporting contexts covered each year ensures students are able to demonstrate these skills in a variety of physical activities.
