PDHPE and Sport

Students develop skills and knowledge in the areas of fundamental movement, physical activity, healthy choices, self and relationships.

We encourage innovative and varied means of learning that enrich the curriculum and bring our students face-to-face with authentic learning experiences designed to meet their learning needs. Our educators use data gathered during various forms of assessment, both formal and informal, to track student progress and students with additional needs are set up with individual or personalised learning plans.
