This is a course that has both practical and theoretical components. It includes elements of modern Physical Education and Health such as anatomy, physiology, history of sport, biomechanics, motor learning, sports medicine and exercise prescription. You will be working towards Level 3 credits for the National Certificate of Achievement in Education (NCEA).

Students have the opportunity to gain 19 level 3 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 student and teacher, encouraging collaborative learning.
