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.
All students in the school are allotted a house team when they enrol at the school. Each year the student body elects house captains and vice captains to lead house sporting activities and encourage team members during all sporting events.

We would like to extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people present. We must always remember that under the concrete and asphalt this land is, was and always will be traditional Aboriginal land.
