Physical Education can be studied as an elective at Stage 1. Physical Education can be taken as either a 1 semester course (10 credits) or for a full year (2 semesters at 10 credits each). Stage 1 aims to continue to build on knowledge, understanding and movement skills developed through years 8-10 and prepare students for further study at year 12 (Stage 2).
Through Physical Education, students explore the participation in and performance of human physical activities. It is an experiential subject in which students explore their physical capacities and investigate the factors that influence and improve participation and performance outcomes, which lead to greater movement confidence and competence. An integrated approach to learning in Physical Education supports an Arnoldian1 educational framework that promotes deep learning ‘in, through and about’ physical activity. Physical activities can include sports, theme-based games, fitness and recreational activities. Classes can undertake a learning and assessment program using a single focus approach (e.g. single sport) or can undertake multiple sports, games and/or activities. Topics that are undertaken include:
Focus Area 1: In movement
Focus Area 2: Through movement
Focus Area 3: About movement
Students are assessed using the SACE assessment criteria based on the learning requirements and performance standards describing their level of achievement. Students are assessed on the following:
It is expected that students change into the PE uniform for all practical lessons and wear appropriate footwear, as directed by their PE teacher.
