Health & Physical Education
Health and Physical Education provides students with a curriculum that is relevant, challenging and physically active. Movement is a powerful medium for learning, through which students can practise and refine personal, behavioural, social, and cognitive skills.
"Physical education makes every child stronger and every life longer."
In Health and Physical Education, students develop the skills, knowledge, and understanding to strengthen their sense of self, and build and manage satisfying, respectful relationships. They learn to build on personal and community strengths and assets to enhance safety and wellbeing. They critique and challenge assumptions and stereotypes. Students learn to navigate a range of health-related sources, services, and organisations.
At the core of Health and Physical Education at BSPS is the acquisition of movement skills and concepts to enable students to participate in a range of physical activities – confidently, competently, and creatively. As a foundation for lifelong physical activity participation and enhanced performance, students acquire an understanding of how the body moves and develop positive attitudes towards physical activity participation. They develop an appreciation of the significance of physical activity, outdoor recreation, and sport in Australian society and globally. Movement is a powerful medium for learning, through which students can practise and refine personal, behavioural, social, and cognitive skills.
