Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) contributes significantly to the cognitive, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of students.  It provides opportunities for students to learn about, and practise ways of, adopting and maintaining a healthy, productive and active life. It also involves students learning through movement experiences that are both challenging and enjoyable, and improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence in a variety of contexts. It promotes the value of physical activity in their lives.

  • Students are encouraged to adopt good hygiene practices by changing out of their PE uniforms following practical lessons and returning to their school uniforms.
  • The PE uniform is made up of a dark blue polo shirt with the school emblem, light blue on the sides and blue piping around the collar and navy blue shorts with the school emblem. In winter, students may wear navy blue tracksuit pants. TSP shirts can be worn on Tuesdays (for sport) or for PE lessons.
  • Appropriate athletic footwear, such as joggers, in conjunction with the PE uniform, is necessary to allow students to safely participate in a wide range of activities and movement skills.
