In our rapidly changing society, there is increasing community awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyles.

Part of this is a growing recognition of the need for students to be active, responsible and informed decision-makers. Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) provides students the knowledge and practical skills necessary for meeting these needs and for developing a better quality of life.

The study of PDHPE is an important area within the primary curriculum, as it is concerned with:

  • physical, social, cognitive and emotional growth
  • developing and maintaining positive interpersonal relationships
  • personal health choices
  • living and learning in a safe secure environment
  • adopting an active lifestyle
  • body movement and co-ordination
  • skills that enable better health and movement
