Health and physical education


​In the subject of Health and Physical Education, our students use their enthusiasm for physical activity and curiosity about health and personal development to explore how the dimensions of health are influenced by personal, social, cultural and environmental factors.  They develop understanding that their health, physical activity and personal development are influenced by individual or group actions and environments.  In their HPE studies at Kimberley Park State School, students individually and collaboratively plan, make decisions, take action and apply skills to promote health and wellbeing.

HPE is organised into three strands:

  • Health – a multidimensional aspect of our lives that is influenced by everyday actions and environments
  • Personal development – personal identity, relationships, self-management, beliefs and behaviours
  • Physical activity – fundamental and specialised movement skills, concepts, tactics and strategies as elements of physical activity.
