Students about to begin training

The PD/H/PE Department provides learning experiences for students that reflect a commitment to a healthy lifestyle and to the GPS sporting traditions of the school.

In the junior years the practical component of PD/H/PE emphasises basic sports skills, physical fitness and teamwork. The theoretical component reinforces the healthy decision making process through the development of personal awareness, communication, interpersonal relationships and drug education.

In Years 10, 11 and 12 PD/H/PE courses are offered to those students with an interest in current personal and community issues surrounding health, physical activity and human movement.

Assessment Regime

The individual assessment model, including exemplar videos, for the four team sports is detailed on the following pages.

Assessment Practice

In order to assist students in improving their skills for the sport assessments, video clips have been designed to help familiarise students with the key coaching points for the basic skills of basketball, cricket, rugby and soccer.

An increased understanding of basic skills provides the motivation for further practice and perfection of these skills. Improved performance will lead to a greater student confidence in both the sports specific skill assessment tasks in PD/H/PE and their GPS sports participation.


PDHPE Assessment Policy

The assessment weighting in Years 7-9 is practical (67%) and theory (33%).
The assessment weighting and course in Year 10 is practical-based.
The assessment weighting for the Year 10 elective course is theory (50%) and practical (50%).

Theory Assessment

Theory assessment methods may include homework tasks, assignments/projects and presentations, student's notebook, unit tests, half yearly and yearly examinations.

Note:

Practical Assessment

Practical assessment methods involve personal fitness assessment, an average assessment of four 1.6k runs and sports specific skill tests.

Note:

1.6km Run Extra Credit 10%
There will be an extra credit 10% on offer for students achieving and maintaining a higher level of aerobic fitness. The extra credit will be assessed on the 4th 1.6 k run performances and added to the Yearly PDHPE assessments.

To gain the extra credit a student must achieve his goal time on the 4th 1.6k run. Any student who runs a time of 6 minutes or better will receive the extra credit, as this is a very high level of aerobic fitness. Students who already have a time better than 6 minutes are encouraged to think and run in terms of "personal best" performances.
1.6km Run Goal Time Conversion Table

Year 10 Practical Assessment
Practical assessment includes physical fitness (20%), an average assessment of four 1.6k runs (20%), skill performance tests (40%) and group activities (20%) focussing on participation, leadership and co-operation in the lesson.

The SBHS Physical Fitness Assessments use the ACHPER Australian Schools Fitness Tests (1996) which includes the 1.6 km run (cardio-respiratory endurance), sit ups (abdominal muscular endurance), push ups (upper body muscular endurance), standing long jump (leg power), sit and reach (back and hamstring flexibility) and 50m sprint (speed).

A student is assessed twice a year in the six tests. The fitness assessment is based on an average percentage of the tests completed. A four year fitness profile is kept for each student.

Parents with enquiries concerning the Term 1 fitness assessment should contact Mr Stein (HT PDHPE) on (02) 9662 9300 during school hours.
