Faculties - PDHPE

Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) is a core subject in Years 7-10. Within the PDHPE Key Learning Area are the subjects of PDHPE (Years 7-10); Physical Activity and Sports Studies (Years 9-10 Elective); Sport, Fitness and Recreation (Vocational Education Course for Year 11-12) and Stage Six PDHPE (Year 11-12). These subjects plus our specialist Year 8 elective subjects of Fitness and Netball are the subjects that are available for students to choose from at Cardiff HS.

The PDHPE Faculty strives to provide a range of learning experiences that will allow students to explore concepts, form opinions, work as a part of a team, be physically active and clarify their values in relation to health and physical activity concepts.

We aim to foster within students an understanding of the value of physical activity and skill development to being a healthy person, physically, socially, emotionally and mentally. We are open to new ideas and opportunities so that our curriculum will continue to evolve and better suit the needs of all students at Cardiff HS, allowing for all students in PDHPE to be Active Learners.
