Health and Physical Education


​​​​Physical Education involves students learning in, about and through physical activity. Students engage in a range of physical learning experiences that support and deepen theoretical essential learning. In the HPE faculty, we believe in creating and empowering future leaders to achieve greatness, inspire the next generation as they are supported to overcome any barriers in life.

Tutorials and online learning

In the first instance, we encourage students to see their HPE teacher if they need extra help. Some teachers make themselves available for student consultations at specific times each week, while others consult students during class for feedback. Additionally, students can access their HPE, eLearn Blackboard site for further information.

All students are welcome to experience the productive learning environment of the school library on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons for Homework Club. Homework Club is supported by teacher aides and teachers. Some Physical Education teachers may attend these sessions, depending on student requests for assistance.
