Truth, Pride and Friendship

Health, Safety and Wellbeing

Heath, Safety and Well Being is presented to the students in three linked programs: Physical Education, Protective Behaviours, and Health

The imparting of Protective Behaviours skills is considered vital for preparing the student for the challenges of later life. Accordingly it has been designated a high focus or priority learning area. See more information here: Protective Behaviours (pdf file).

Physical Education and Health are also considered to be of high importance. We are aiming to build each student's acceptance of responsibility for their whole being. A range of directed and explorative activities contribute to this development.

A gross motor skills and fine motor skills scope and sequence was developed in 2010 and continues to be refined as a means of identifying, assessing and developing the movement abilities of individual students.

All classes have time factored into their timetable for physical activities. This is utilised for games, coordination activities, exercise and building confidence.
