What is PDHPE?
Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) develops the knowledge, skills and attitudes important for students to make positive decisions to protect and enhance their own and other’s health, safety and wellbeing in varied and changing contexts.
PDHPE at Winmalee High School provides students with the opportunity to enhance and develop resilience and connectedness and students learn to interact respectfully with others. Through a strength-based approach to teaching and learning, students are provided with opportunities to think critically, challenge assumptions and develop behaviours and attitudes which promote the development of empathy, respectful relationships, inclusivity and social justice.
Students practise, develop and refine the physical, cognitive, social and emotional skills that are important for engaging in movement and the capacity to lead a healthy, safe and physically active life.
