Health and Physical Education

Physical education applies a holistic approach to the concept of physical activity for young people. Students take part in a range of games, sports and adventure-based learning, which together teach inter-personal skills such as being inclusive and working in teams. Learning in physical education involves the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills, and attitudes central to physical education, together with recognition of its potential for integration with other curriculum areas.

The focus is on the well-being of the students themselves, of other people, and of society through learning in Health related and movement contexts. In health, students develop their understanding of the factors that influence the health of individuals, groups and society. In Physical Education, the focus is on movement and its contribution to the development of individuals and communities.
