Health and Physical Education

Health and Physical Education teaches students how to enhance their own and others’ health, safety, wellbeing and physical activity participation in varied and changing contexts. The Health and Physical Education learning area has strong foundations in scientific fields such as physiology, nutrition, biomechanics and psychology which inform what we understand about healthy, safe and active choices. The Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education (F–10) is informed by these sciences and offers students an experiential curriculum that is contemporary, relevant, challenging, enjoyable and physically active.

All students must participate in Health Education and General Physical Education throughout Years 7-10.

The Development Programs are available via selection trials only. If places become available at the end of each term, students will be selected on the basis of their demonstrated ability and commitment to the particular area of study.

“There is a universal notion, exaggerated in Australia, that sport connects people who are not connected either by history, community, culture, gender, race, class or status.
Sport is seen as the transcender, the unifier and the healer of difference. “
