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.

Sport houses

During Term 1, your child will be placed in a house for sporting and other school activities. The houses are:

  • Kendall (red)
  • Mackellar (green)
  • Paterson (blue)
  • Lawson (yellow)

If your child has older brothers or sisters, they will automatically be placed in the same house.
