Health and Physical Education
The Health and Physical Education learning area delivers a flexible and varied learning and sporting experience. Our staff have a broad range of expertise and have built strong partnerships with community, state and national bodies to support the learning activities on offer.
Students are provided with a broad range of knowledge, understanding and skill to help them achieve successful outcomes in personal, social, movement and online situations. They learn how to take positive action to enhance their health, safety and wellbeing by applying problem-solving and effective communication skills, and through a range of preventive health practices. Students continue to develop and refine specialised movement skills and focus on developing tactical thinking skills in a range of contexts and apply them to physical activities. They have opportunities to analyse their own and others' performance using feedback to improve body control and coordination. The application of fair play and ethical behaviour continues to be a focus for students as they consider modified rules, scoring systems and equipment, which allows participants to enjoy physical activities and experience success.
We are fully equipped to offer a range of physical education activities that cater for a range of abilities and interests. We have a rock climbing wall, mountain bikes, canoes, fitness centre, camping/trekking materials just to name a few. We offer both general and ATAR courses and nationally recognised certificates in the senior years.
