Personal development, health and physical education
Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.
According to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), students are expected to participate in PDHPE for between 1.5 and 2.5 hours per week in Kindergarten to Year 6.
PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.
The Sporting Schools program is an after school activity that runs for seven weeks. The free program focuses on getting students active through fun sports activities. There are limited places and applications must be made using the eForm via the Skoolbag application. It does not run every term so keep an eye out in the newsletter for openings or speak to Mr Fenech for more information.
