Health and Physical Education

The Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education (HPE) provides opportunities for students to develop abilities to access, evaluate and synthesise information and take positive action to protect, enhance and advocate for themselves and others. Students are supported to build, engage with, and manage online environments, through the development of personal, behavioural, social and cognitive skills and strategies, to promote a sense of personal identity and wellbeing.  

As media continues to transform our lives and change the way we communicate, students will continue to require, acquire and use critical inquiry skills to research, analyse and understand the influences on their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing.
