Health and Physical Education (HPE) is a compulsory subject for all students up until Year 9.  Their motto, Moving Bodies, Moving Minds drives their teaching and learning. 

HPE provides a holistic approach to education.  It focuses on students learning about their bodies, the way they move, what they are capable of and how their minds grow and change when they manage their bodies productively.

Students who study HPE will:

  • gain perspectives about nutrition and the science of human development
  • grow confident in their own physical abilities to apply their skills to new sports and physical activities
  • become life-long movers and will learn the benefits of being active

In Years 7-8 students will study HPE for three out of four semesters.  It becomes compulsory for Year 9 students and an elective for Years 10-12. 

Year 11-12 can choose between general subject Physical Education, as well as Certificate III/IV in Fitness.  These certificates are packaged with a Certificate II in Sport and Recreations.
