Health and Physical Education

Health & Physical Education Studies

This Learning Area includes Health and all of the sporting/ physical education Specialist Elective subjects.

Physical Education is aimed at allowing students to experience a wide range of physical activities so that they can make informed choices about a healthy lifestyle and the pursuit of recreational and competition sports.

All year levels at the College participate in Physical Education lessons for 90 minutes per week. In these lessons, students learn the basic principles, skills and rules of a range of sports. In Years 7 and 8, students also cycle through a series of Elective subjects which include Fitness and Physical recreation. In Year 9 and 10, students can elect to participate in Physical Recreation which includes activities such as leisure sports, fishing, body-boarding and surfing. Students may also participate in Sports Studies and Advanced Sports Studies. These subjects give students an increased understanding of both the physical as well as theoretical aspects of various sports and the skills required to coach those sporting activities.

In Year 11 and 12, students can choose Physical Education Studies (Stage 1 to Stage 3) as well as a Certificate II in Sport and Recreation.

Health classes are compulsory for students in Year 7 to 10. Topics covered include healthy lifestyles, healthy eating, fitness, emotional and physical well-being and relationships.
