Health and Physical Education

Hauora a korikori tinana

Students engage in activities that promote physical fitness, teamwork, and skill development, participating in sports, exercise routines, and recreational activities. Simultaneously, the curriculum includes health education, covering topics such as nutrition, mental health, substance abuse prevention, and sexual health.

Students will experience and participate in enjoyable physical activities in a range of environments and connect to well-being. 

Learn to clear the net, play traditional Māori games, move to the groove and more. HPE at this level also has Winter Wonderland, Summer Blitz and Hiking the Hills - special classes that take advantage of the season.

Choosing HPE at senior level explores the underlying concept of Hauora (well-being) and will be investigated through effects on personal, interpersonal, and societal influences.

I am passionate about active learning, and I believe that the skills taught in PE and Health contribute significantly to the well-being of students beyond the classroom, allowing them to be better equipped to deal with what life throws at them.
