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.

Snow Sports

One of the benefits of living in Bredbo is that we are in close proximity to the Snowy Mountains. Each year, students have the opportunity to participate in a Skiing and snowboarding program in Thredbo. These programs are terrific fun as well as being a terrific opportunity to learn a skill not normally provided to many students in Australia.
