Personal development, health and physical education

Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.

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.

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.

Fitness program

Students from Kindergarten through to Year 6 participate in a regular fitness program.


Our school provides a wide range of sporting experiences for students throughout the year. All students are given the opportunity to represent the Tweed Zone, North Coast Region and the State of New South Wales. Many students from our school have progressed to the state level and have acquitted themselves well.

The school is proud of the sporting achievements and sportsmanship displayed by its students and, although the Tweed Zone does not have any regular interschool competition, the students of our schooll are offered competition through events arranged with other schools in our zone.

The students' skills and endurance are catered for through the many and varied activities performed during the regular physical education classes.
