Physical Education and Health

The subject aims to increase students’ fitness levels through fitness profiling and participating in a range of different activities which include resistance training, circuit training, boxing, group fitness, cross country running, orienteering, swimming and various team sports.  Students will be expected to explore their use of space on the sporting field/court and how they rely on others to achieve individual and team goals. Students’ will undertake a full fitness profile, measuring fitness capabilities across a number of areas and design their own training program. Technology will be incorporated with the use of heart rate monitors and GPS units to assess training progress.
