In Health and Physical Education, students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to make decisions and take action to strengthen their sense of personal identity and autonomy, build resilience, manage risk and develop satisfying, respectful relationships.
Regular health and physical education activities are designed to improve students’ skill levels, interpersonal abilities and general wellbeing, which also contributes to their academic performance and overall happiness.
All students will have access to a range of sporting contexts and interschool opportunities in both individual and team sports.
Health Education focuses on prevention and resilience and covers areas of prime importance to adolescents living in a rapidly changing world. Every student in Years 7-10 participates in Health Education, learning key principles of good health and wellbeing both now and in the future. Our aim is to develop students’ abilities and skills to make considered decisions to ensure their good physical, mental, emotional and social health.
The activities offered in the Physical Education program are designed to increase students’ motor ability and physical health, along with many social wellbeing benefits.
