Personal development, health and physical education

Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.

According to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), students are expected to participate in PDHPE for between 1.5 and 2.5 hours per week in Kindergarten to Year 6.

PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.

Athletics Carnival

The Athletics Carnival is a whole school event which is held at the Campbelltown Athletics Centre, Leumeah. This event allows all students to participate in athletic activities such as shot put, discus, high jump, long jump and track events. We also hold novelty events for our infants students including, egg and spoon races and obstacle courses.
