Personal Development Health and Physical Education
All students complete the syllabus from the Australian Curriculum in Personal Development, Health and Physical
Education. In devising the program, the PDHPE Department has ensured it meets the requirements of the NSW
Education Standards Authority (NESA) while providing students with fun, challenging and worthwhile learning
experiences across a variety of activities.
Students complete theoretical components that cover a wide range of important topics relating to health, lifestyle,
nutrition, first aid, relationships and decision-making.
One key goal is to improve student understanding of why fitness is important in their daily life, how it can be measured
and ways to improve their current fitness level. To this end, we also host whole school carnivals each year in Cross-
Country and Athletics.
In addition, we include many different sports and activities based modules in our Stage 4 and 5 practical curriculum.
Students also participate in Gymnastics, Basketball, Swimming lessons as well as visits to our local Fitness Centre
where they have the opportunity to be trained by experts.
