In Health and Physical Education, students develop the
knowledge, understanding and skills to strengthen their sense of self, and
build and manage satisfying relationships. The curriculum helps them to be
resilient, and to make decisions and take actions to promote their health,
safety and physical activity participation.
As a foundation for lifelong physical activity participation and
enhanced performance, students 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, they develop an appreciation of the
significance of physical activity, outdoor recreation and sport both in
Australian society and globally.
