At Kindlehill we offer an extensive PDHPE Personal Development and program, through a mixture of both practical and theoretical lessons. We also offer the world renowned ‘Rock and Water’ program to our students, aimed at building resilience, self-control and self-confidence.
In our theoretical lesson students will learn about a range of age-appropriate topics which are tailored to each cohort of students from the perspective of both need and interest.
- food and nutrition
- personal identity
- mental health and wellbeing
- alcohol and other drugs
- sexuality and sexual health
- health benefits of physical activity
In our practical PE lessons, students have access to a wide range of activities and opportunities. With the Wentworth Falls Lake on our doorstep, we are able to offer a range of activities during the warmer months. These include kayaking, paddle polo, water volleyball, water polo and swimming.
Some of the other activities that students participate in are:
- street hockey
- mini Tennis
- Fitness circuits
