Personal development, health and physical education

Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is undertaken at Graleee from Kindergarten to Year 12.

According to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), students are expected to participate in PDHPE for between 1.5 and 2.5 hours per week in Kindergarten to Year 6 and for 300 hours per year in Years 7 to 10.

PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.

In Year 11 and 12, courses available include:

  • Personal Development, Health and Physical Education Life Skills

Sports and physical activity

We have physical activity programs for children from Kindergarten to Year 2, with a focus on fundamental movement skills.

PE programs include intensive swim and water safety for our K-6 students. Senior swimming is conducted in term 4, for a 2 week period.
