Stage 2 Physical Education

Students will study the topics of exercise physiology physical activity and skill acquisition/biomechanics of movement. Students will also undertake three moderated practicals. Practicals will be selected based on strengths of the class. This could include aquatics, basketball, netball, volleyball and soccer. Students will also complete a variety of folio tasks and one issues analysis.
