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.

Our school is a member of the Green Valley Zone Primary Schools Sports Association (PSSA), in the Sydney south west region. Information about the local primary schools' sports competitions, including the draw for each season and sport (when available), can be found on the Green Valley PSSA website.
