Health and Physical Education (HPE) is an integral part of school life and instils in our students a strong appreciation for personal fitness and the benefits of teamwork.
Corinda prides itself on its commitment to quality sporting competitions and opportunities for all. This comes from a deeply held belief that physical activity is essential for the physical, social and emotional well-being of our students. As such, there are many opportunities for students to become involved in sport at Corinda.
All students participate in the Australian Curriculum: HPE at their year level from Year 7 to 9. An overview of the curriculum, including topics and suggested assessment tasks, is available in the Junior Secondary Handbook.
