Physical Education classes provide students with the opportunity to develop their physical and social health. Through participation and exposure to a range of sports and leisure activities students are able to find activities that will encourage them to be active for life.
Our program emphasises participation, the development of movement skills and game sense. We put students with others of like ability to maximise learning confidence, student comfort and skill development. Students in Year 10 have a range of PE electives to choose from. The Sports coaching elective gives students the opportunity to become qualified in General Principles of Coaching and Officiating through the Australian Sports Commision. Other year 10 electives include Personal training and fitness, Team sports and leadership and Outdoor Education. All subjects have links to VCE PE and Outdoor Education.
Our program extends to multiple classes in VCE, with Physical Education and Outdoor Education offered at the College.
We are proud to deliver an age appropriate Health curriculum from Years 7 to 10. Our objective is to provide students with the information that they need to make informed choices about their lifestyle and risk taking activities. A skills based program is aimed at equipping students with the skills that are needed to cope with teenage life and into adulthood. Through the Health content students are encouraged to consider the physical, social, mental, emotional and spiritual health of themselves and how their actions affect the health of those around them.
Risk taking behavior, lifestyles and respectful relationships is the focus of the Years 7 to 9 curriculum. Students in Year 10 continue to be engaged in the risk taking content and begin to explore the various aspects of Health and Development. Health and Human Development is offered to students at VCE level with students accessing this subject from Year 10 onwards.
