Physical Education in Years 7 and 8

In Years 7 and 8, Physical Education classes enable students to learn the importance of cooperative behaviour and participation through activities such as athletics, volleyball, cricket, role playing, fitness, swimming, soccer, gymnastics, decision-making activities, hockey, football, basketball, netball, softball, futsal, indoor games and tennis.

Participation in these activities allows students to meet the challenges provided by varied experiences and to develop positive social skills for the future.  There is also a major Health component in the curriculum.

The study of Health and Human Development provides an opportunity for students to investigate health
and human development issues across the lifespan. Students will develop the knowledge, attitudes,
values and skills to become actively involved in influencing their own health and development, and the
health of their local and global communities.

and the ways in which humans interact with, relate to and have impacted outdoor environments over

The study enables students to make critically informed comments on outdoor environmental issues, including asking questions about environmental sustainability and human connections to Country, both past and present. Students are able to understand the importance of change to environmental health from human or natural influences.

Physical Education focuses on the relationship between motor learning and psychological, biomechanical,
physiological and sociological factors that influence physical performance and participation in physical
