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.
