NCEA Level 3 Physical Education
Teacher in Charge: Mrs E. Walker
This course is based on level 8 of HPE in the New Zealand curriculum and is aimed at students who wish to study Physical Education in greater detail.
There is a camp in term 1 where students are assessed on their performance of a skill. We also use the Tough Guy and Gal challenge as our event in term 3 for our training programme.
A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
Contributions and Equipment/Stationery
It is recommended that students purchase the Year 13 PE workbook, attend the paddle board sessions and camp and complete the Tough Guy & Gal challenge.
It is recommended students pay the course costs of $175 which includes camp, transport and paddle board hireage.
