P.E.    SunSmart & Youth Awards



Physical Education is a compulsory unit for all Year 7, 8 and 9 students.  This involves three periods of PE a week and one period of Health.

If a student has a valid reason for not being able to participate on a particular day(s), they need to supply a signed, dated note from a Parent or Guardian, stating the reason ‘why they cannot participate in that class’. This measure is designed to safe-guard, both the student and the teacher.


When participating in practical PE classes, students are expected to have a full change of gear for these classes. This includes changing into the school sport uniform which includes the sport polo shirt, shorts and runners. Students will be given time to change into their uniform both at the beginning and the end of the lesson, they are to get changed back into their school uniform after PE. They are not to come to school in their sport uniform.

It is, simply, a return to policy of past years and we seek assistance from both parents and students in this regard.

If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact me,

Shanee Squire (Learning Area Leader)
