We provide opportunities for students to learn about and practise methods of adopting and maintaining a healthy, productive and active life.
We utilise College facilities to provide for unique learning experiences that are both challenging and enjoyable, while at all times being mindful of improving each student's capacity to move with skill and confidence in a variety of contexts.
Students develop the knowledge and skills needed to understand and enhance their interactions and interpersonal relationships in ways that promote positive health and movement outcomes for themselves and others.
Students also value physical fitness and model healthy lifestyles. We provide opportunities for students to develop, adapt and improvise their movement skills in a wide variety of challenging contexts and environments that appeal to their needs and interests thereby enhancing their enjoyment and excitement in sport and ultimately increasing the likelihood of lifelong physical activity.

Through the study of Personal Development, Health and Physical Education courses, students develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes needed to take action to protect and enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing in varied and changing contexts. Physical education is fundamental to the acquisition of movement skills and concepts to enable students to participate in a range of physical activities – confidently, competently and creatively.
Stage 5 PASS (Elective)
Physical Activity and Sports Studies aims to enhance students’ capacity to participate effectively in physical activity and sport, leading to improved quality of life for themselves and others.
