Health and Physical Education

Darul Ulum College of Victoria Health and Physical Education (HPE) aims to instill in students the capacity to enhance their own and others’ health, safety, wellbeing and physical activity participation in a variety of contexts. It aims to provide students with an experiential curriculum that is current, relevant, stimulating, enjoyable and physically active.

In Health and Physical Education, students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to strengthen their sense of self, and build and manage satisfying relationships. The curriculum helps them acquire skills to be resilient, to make decisions and take actions to promote their health, safety and physical activity participation.

During P.E. lessons, students:

  • Have access to ample sports resources
  • Warm up exercise
  • Demonstrate the game
  • Warm down and reflect

The Health and P.E. program at Darul Ulum College strives to impart in students the following:

  • Movement skills, concepts and strategies to enable students to confidently, competently and creatively participate in a range of physical activities.
  • Appreciate the significance of physical activity, outdoor recreation and sport both in Australian society and globally. Using movement, students can acquire, practice and refine personal, behavioural, social and cognitive skills.
  • Refine skills, self-efficacy and dispositions to advocate for, and positively influence, their own and others’ health and wellbeing.

Extra activities and programs are conducted periodically to support the subject of Health and P.E. at the College.

Students are supplied with soft balls/skipping ropes/hula-hoops to be physically active/engaged during recess and lunch breaks.

Students participate in National Health Week:

  • Jump Rope for Heart competition.
  • National ‘Walk Safely to School Day’

Sports day is the highlight of the year. Presentation by all year levels, sprint and relay competition and a variety of activities for the whole day.
