Health & Physical Education

At LJBC, the Health & Physical Education Learning Area provides the opportunity for students to learn about movement patterns, healthy lifestyles and apply their skills to a host of activities, both competitive and non-competitive.

Health Education in the Secondary School is compulsory from year 7-10 with students exploring a range of topics relevant to their healthy development. Topics explored include mental health, drug education, road safety, sex and relationship education.

Students are equipped with the knowledge on how to live a healthy lifestyle and the skills necessary to help others in need.

Physical education in the Secondary School is also compulsory for Years 7-10. In the younger years we seek to cement the acquisition of fundamental movement skills when applied to a range of movement scenarios. As students progress through the curriculum into Years 9 and 10 the focus becomes incorporating the movement systems they have learnt and applying them to the most tactically appropriate scenarios.
