HEALTH & PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Students will inquire, be challenged and inspired to achieve their personal best.
At St Brigid’s College, we strive to provide an enjoyable and rewarding program whilst complementing the aims of the College and Curriculum Framework. Our dedicated Health and Physical Education teachers will support your child’s learning and encourage them through their learning journey.
The Health & Physical Education Learning Area aims to provide students with opportunities to develop physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. The curriculum offers a comprehensive range of learning experiences to meet the needs of individual students and encourage active involvement by all. The College is equipped with excellent resources to support student learning with a 25m Indoor Pool, two large ovals, multiple outdoor courts and a College Dam for open water activities. Our intention is to support the development of physical competence and to promote the skills necessary to effectively plan and reflect for a healthy lifestyle, movement and movement related activities, safely and with confidence. We also incorporate the teachings of fair play and sportsmanship as essential elements of the students learning experience.
