Health and Physical Education
The Health and Physical Education program at Gleeson College offers a range of opportunities for students to engage in a variety of sport, outdoor adventure and other lifestyle activities. Through Health and Physical Education students may elect to undertake traditional Physical Education, Outdoor Education and/or our Netball SA or World Football Specialist Programs.
Physical Education is compulsory from Years 7-10 but can also be studied in Years 11 and 12. The Year 7-10 program is aligned with the Australian Curriculum with a focus not only on traditional sports and collaboration through team activities but students also gain an understanding of the importance of good nutrition, daily physical activity, mental and social wellbeing and the cultural significance of sport and physical activity. Students undertake two 90-minute lessons each week with Senior classes completing an extra theory lesson each week.
