Level 3 Physical Education
Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. Cleaver
A full achievement standard course which is a UE approved subject and course endorsement is available (despite what KAMAR tells you !). This course is made up of a mixture of sports science and socio cultural theory which engages you in critical thinking about “all things physical”. Contemporary approaches to skill acquisition and leadership are explored.
The 2020 course was co-constructed with student input based on interests and what students wanted to get out of PE. Practical activities include : Badminton, Tough Gal, Turbo Touch, Leading Primary students for PE, visits to/from Millenium institute of sport and AUT and a range of practical activities to engage you in critical thinking about key concepts.
There may be an opportunity to take part in the ‘Tough Gal Competition’. The approximate cost is $45 plus transport (this event is optional).
Learning and evidence for assessment is gathered through immersion in the practical aspect of the course.
The standards offered in this course may be altered at the discretion of the Head of Department.
