Health and Physical Education Curriculum Overview

The Health and Pysical Education curriculum at Darul ulum College of Victoria aims at developing students’ tactical skills which allows them to play in a team environment. Students refine skills of throwing, catching, batting, running, passing and goal scoring in a fun and engaging atmosphere. Students in years 7-10 learn a variety of sports, which include basketball, rounders, soccer, badminton and bat tennis. Their skills are showcased in the annual Sports Day which is held in term 1, which aims to unite all students, 7-12, in a day filled with challenges, races and team sports. In terms 2-4, students are invited to participate in lunchtime tournaments: Basketball, Dodgeball and Rounders. Matches occur between class levels which creates an aura for heightened competition and competitiveness.

Darul Ulum also facilitates afterschool basketball classes with trained professionals on a weekly basis in terms 1 and 3.

In the health component of our curriculum, students learn about health and wellbeing in their classes. They develop understanding of body image and self-esteem, stress, hygiene, community health issues, nutrition and drugs in sport. Students learn to navigate a range of health-related sources, services and organisations in order to be well informed.
