L2 Physical Education - Performance

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Welch

Recommended Prior Learning

Students must have demonstrated a willingness to get changed, get involved, follow instructions and PE department guidelines.

This course is practical and is about positive participation. Students must be willing to get changed into PE gear, get involved in activities offered by the teacher & participate in the school Cross Country.   There are L2/3 NCEA credits available but this is not the focus of this course (there may be theory / written work involved for these). All students in this class are expected to participate in a 'Community Service' day if it is organised by their teacher. This is a popular option & students who have not demonstrated positive participation in their current PE class may not be eligible (limited numbers!).
