Health and Physical Education has two dimensions:

  • Movement and physical activity
  • Health knowledge and promotion

 

Movement and physical activity focuses on developing confidence in using movement skills and strategies to increase students’ motivation to become active as well as improving their performance and maintaining a level of fitness.
Health knowledge and promotion examines physical health and personal development across various stages of the lifespan and focuses on factors which promote the physical, mental, social and emotional health of individuals, families and communities.
