In an increasingly complex, sedentary and rapidly changing world it is critical for every young Australian to not only be able to cope with life's challenges but also to flourish as healthy, safe and active citizens in the 21st century.
Physical Education at this school allows students to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to strengthen their sense of self and build and manage satisfying, respectful relationships.
At its core, Physical Education is the acquisition of movement skills and concepts to enable students to participate in a range of physical activities - confidently, competently and creatively. As a foundation for lifelong physical activity participation and enhanced perfomance, students acquire an understanding of how the body moves and develop positive attitudes towards physical activity participation.
Movement is a powerful medium for learning, through which students can practise and refine personal, behavioural, social and cognitive skills. Physical Education at Glass House Mountains State School provides students with an experiential curriculum that is contemporary, relevant, challenging, physically active and most importantly, engaging and fun.
