PHYSICAL EDUCATION & HEALTH DOMAIN
Physical Education & Health Learning Leader
Health and Physical Education focuses on students enhancing their own and others’ health and wellbeing and physical activity participation. Research in fields such as sociology, physiology, nutrition, biomechanics and psychology informs what we understand about healthy, safe and active choices. Health and Physical Education offers you an experiential curriculum that is contemporary, relevant, challenging, enjoyable and physically active.
As a foundation for lifelong physical activity participation and enhanced performance, you develop proficiency in movement skills, physical activities and movement concepts and acquire an understanding of the science behind how the body moves. In doing so, you develop an appreciation of the significance of physical activity, outdoor recreation and sport both in Australian society and globally.
