Personal development, health and physical education

Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.

According to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), students are expected to participate in PDHPE for 300 hours per year in Years 7 to 10.

PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.

The elective courses offered by the PDHPE faculty include:

Years 9 and 10

  • Physical Activity and Sport Studies (PASS)

Years 11 and 12

  • Personal Development, Health and Physical Education
  • Community and Family Studies

The PDHPE faculty also organise Thursday afternoon sport, school carnivals, knockout teams, gala days and various sporting clubs.
