Students about to begin training

The PD/H/PE Department provides learning experiences for students that reflect a commitment to a healthy lifestyle, motivated by a “personal best performance” mindset, aligned with the GPS sporting traditions of the school.

In the junior years the program emphasises the content strands Health, Well-being and Relationships, Healthy, Safe and Active Lifestyles and Movement Skill and Performance.

In Years 10 the PASS elective course and 11 and 12 PD/H/PE HSC courses are offered to those students with an interest in current personal and community issues surrounding health, physical activity and human movement.

Preliminary and HSC Course Overview

Assessment Regime

The individual assessment model, including exemplar videos, for the four team sports is detailed on the following pages.

Assessment Practice

In order to assist students in improving their skills for the sport assessments, video clips have been designed to help familiarise students with the key coaching points for the basic skills of basketball, cricket, rugby and soccer.

An increased understanding of basic skills provides the motivation for further practice and perfection of these skills. An emphasis on personal best performance also leads to a greater student confidence in both the sports specific skill assessment tasks in PD/H/PE and their GPS sports participation.
