Physical Education

This is a dynamic department that encompasses Physical Education and Health, Outdoor Education and Sport.

Our Staff focus closely on movement and its contribution to the development of our students and communities.  By learning in, through and about movement our students gain an understanding that movement is integral to human expression and that it can contribute to people's pleasure and enhance their well-being.

At Sacred Heart College Physical Education is compulsory at Year 9 and Year 10, and is taken as an option at Year 11, 12 and 13.  The students explore human movement through anatomical, physiological, and biomechanical analysis, and learn about various sports psychology methods as a way to improve performance.  Sports nutrition, programme planning and current issues around sport are also examined.

Outdoor education complements and enhances the traditional curriculum available at Sacred Heart College.  It provides opportunities for learning, different from those in the classroom and has special value in the interpersonal and social development of the students. It offers experiences and challenges in and around some of the environments that mould us as a region and provides a real pathway to students keen to transfer these skills in to tertiary training and employment. 

Sacred Heart College offers further Outdoor education opportunities in the Year 10 day tramp, culminating in the senior option classes in Years 11, 12 and 13.  Over 250 students are currently enrolled in the Young New Zealander's Challenge of The Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award and Sacred Heart College has had the largest number of students graduate with their Gold Award in NZ in the past 5 Years.
