Health and Physical Education

Health and Physical Education Learning Area outcomes are linked to the progressive development of a healthy, active lifestyle for students. Students progress throughout their schooling to achieve higher levels of skills and knowledge about influences that enable the attainment of healthy active lifestyles. Students also utilise time in the Health and Physical Education Learning area to develop self management skills, which are based on informed decision making. Central to the ongoing education of each student is the development of interpersonal skills for the establishment and maintenance of effective relationships in life.

Although students do demonstrate attitudes and values with increasing complexity over time, it is difficult to describe a developmental sequence for the measurement of attitudes and values that students hold and demonstrate toward achieving a healthy, active lifestyle. The Health and Physical Education Learning Area encourages and monitors the values each student places on achieving a healthy, active lifestyle.

Outcomes linked with the Health and Physical Education Learning Area are predominantly addressed through learning in such areas as Health Education, Physical Education, Outdoor Education, Sport and Dance.

Melville SHS has a dedicated staff who enable students to participate in a great variety of sports, both in school time and after school. See the Specialist Netball Program tab for details on our specialist sport and see below for examples of activities in which a large number of students participate.
