Teacher in Charge: Mr T. MadarRecommended Prior Learning
Level 2 Physical Education will provide students with the opportunity to build on their understanding of sports science such as functional anatomy, biomechanics, and sports psychology. Understanding these biophysical principles will help students self-assess and examine ways to improve performance for themselves and others. Students will also have an opportunity to develop their coaching and leadership skills as they are required to run "push play" activities to promote the benefits of physical activity in the community.
Students have the opportunity to gain 19 Level 2 achievement standard credits, all of which are internally assessed. They also have the opportunity to gain course endorsement with merit or excellence in this subject. To gain an excellence endorsement, students need to gain 14 or more credits at excellence level. To gain a merit endorsement, they need to gain 14 or more credits at merit (or a combination of merit and excellence).
Individual teachers will also give students access to their own google classroom site. This is a safe digital environment for student learning that enables students to view assessments, ask online questions about work and allows students to catch up on any work/resources that are missed if absent. It also allows research resources to be posted by both students and teacher encouraging collaborative learning.
