Health and Physical Education / Outdoor Education
Health and Physical Education focuses on students enhancing their own and others’ health, safety, wellbeing and physical activity participation in varied and changing contexts.
Students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to strengthen their sense of self and to build positive relationships. The curriculum helps them to be resilient, and to make decisions and take actions to promote their health, safety and physical activity participation.
Integral to Health and Physical Education is the acquisition of movement skills, concepts and strategies to enable students to confidently, competently and creatively participate in a range of physical activities. Students develop proficiency in their movement skills and acquire an understanding of the science behind how the body moves. In doing so, they develop an appreciation of the significance of physical activity, outdoor recreation and sport both in Australian society and globally.
Outdoor Education engages students in practical and active learning experiences in natural environments and settings typically beyond the school boundary. In these environments, students develop knowledge, understanding and skills to move safely and competently while valuing a positive relationship with and promoting the sustainable use of these environments.
At Tallangatta Secondary College we offer a broad range of Health and Physical Education and Outdoor Education subjects designed to cater for a variety of student interests and ability levels, whilst meeting the requirements of the Victorian Curriculum.
