PE300
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Heil

Recommended Prior Learning

Ideally you would have competed Level 2 P.E. with at least 12 of the Level 2 credits at Merit Level and participation in school extra-curricular sport.

It is still possible to take PE at Level 3 if you did not take it at Level 2. Students who wish to study Level 3 Physical Education who did not study Physical Education at Level 2 should discuss this with Mrs Heil.

This course will be different every year and the topics studied will depend on the interests of the students.  This is a co-designed course which means the assessments and contexts are planned together, students and teacher.  

This course can be taken as a half year option. 

This means you would complete 3 internals in Term 1-2 (one of which is purely practical) and then have a study option for Terms 3-4.   

The Tough Gal Challenge


You do not have to be a great sportswoman to get Excellences in this course.

•To provide students with the knowledge and skills they require to study Physical Education in a Tertiary Education Institution.
•To provide opportunities for students to develop personal and social skills and attributes that contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
