Health and Physical Education in Year 9 and 10
The junior Health and Physical Education programme at Whanganui Girls’ College is compulsory for all students in years 9 and 10. The course is made up of two practical PE lessons per week and one weekly health lesson. From this course, students gain skills, knowledge, attitudes and motivation to make informed decisions that help them enhance their own well-being, the well-being of other people and that of society as a whole.
The course focuses on the development of a wide range of movement and physical activity skills as applied specifically to sports and recreational activities. Students acquire knowledge and understanding about movement and develop positive attitudes towards physical activity. Students also gain valuable knowledge and skills on how to enhance relationships and work more effectively with other people.
The course aims to provide students with a variety of skills to help them lead a healthy and active lifestyle. It is hoped that the experiences they receive and skills and knowledge they gain will help them to sustain a healthy lifestyle in the future and to have a life long rewarding association with physical activity.
