Physical Education (HPE) uses movement as a powerful medium for learning,
through which students can acquire, practice and refine personal, behavioural,
social and cognitive skills. HPE provides students with the knowledge,
understanding and skills to strengthen their sense of self, build resilience
and to make decisions and take actions to promote their health, safety and
physical activity participation. They develop critical inquiry skills to
research and analyse factors that enhance performance and those factors that
influence their own and others health.
In 2018 all year 7-9 High Performance sport subjects will be
linked to the HPE curriculum. Mabel Park SHS students that wish to engage in
the High Performance sport subjects have the choice of Rugby League, Soccer,
Basketball and Netball.
