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.
We have physical activity programs for children from Kindergarten to Year 6, with a focus on fundamental movement skills. During physical education, students learn to run, jump, kick, throw, catch, skip and hop. Students also have the opportunity to practise these skills during an allocated sport time.
