Health and Physical Education

The aim of Health and Physical education is to:

  • develop students’ capacities to make decisions and act in ways that promote their health and that of others;
  • focus on the important role physical activity plays in the lives of all students by providing opportunities for personal growth, enjoyment and challenge; and
  • promote understanding and valuing of one’s personal identity and development and the need for positive relationships.

The learning areas are organized into three strands:

  • the student acts to promote health;
  • the student is physically skilled and active, and
  • the student manages self and relationships.
