Year 8 - Health and Physical Education


In Physical Education classes, students will be given the opportunity to develop their skills and game strategies in sports that include badminton, basketball, tennis, football and cricket. Students will also perform and demonstrate gymnastic movements and sequences on apparatus including the beam, vault and mini-tramp.

In Health classes, students will develop an awareness of skin conditions and how to deal with them, the risks and responsibilities involved with the use of alcohol in our society and how to make healthy lifestyle choices regarding food, exercise and relationships.
