Physical Education Level 3

Physical Education helps students to develop the skills, knowledge and competencies to live healthy and physically active lives at school and for the rest of their life. They learn ‘in, through and about’ movement, gaining an understanding that movement is integral to human expression and can contribute to people’s pleasure and enhance their lives. 

Physical Education engages and energizes students. It provides authentic contexts in which to learn. Students challenge themselves to develop their physical and interpersonal skills. They experience movement and understand the role that it plays in their lives.
