R-12 HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION CURRICULUM

At Hallett Cove School (HCS), Health and Physical Education (HPE) provides opportunities for students to adopt lifelong healthy, active living.
Health and Physical Education offers experiential learning, with a curriculum that is relevant, engaging, contemporary, physically active, enjoyable and developmentally appropriate.

 

Health and Physical Education at Hallett Cove School

Healthy and Physical Education at Hallett Cove School embraces and extends to the notions of learning ‘in, through and about’ movement. HPE also encompasses learning ‘for’ movement in diverse ways and contexts. Contexts of physical activity and sport are therefore central to HPE, but HPE is distinguished from ‘physical activity’ and ‘sport’ by virtue of its core focus on learning.

 

Health and Physical Education as part of the Australian National Curriculum

At Hallett Cove School, Healthy and Physical Education is valued for its critical contribution to students’ holistic development in providing engaging, novel and personally and socially challenging learning contexts that meet the Australian Curriculum’s general capabilities, cross-curriculum priorities and recognition of learner diversity.



HEALTHY AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION CURRICULUM AT HALLETT COVE SCHOOL

Health and Physical Education is compulsory for all students across R-10. In HPE students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to support them to be resilient, to develop a strong sense of self, to build and maintain satisfying relationships, to make health-enhancing decisions in relation to their health and physical activity participation, and to develop health literacy competencies in order to enhance their own and others’ health and wellbeing in ever-changing contexts.

HPE Curriculum in Junior and Middle School

During Junior (R-6) and Middle (7-9) School students are exposed to a wide variety of traditional sports, minor games, fitness activities, alternative forms of physical activity and recreational pursuits.
