Health & Physical Education

The Balga SHS Physical Education department is committed to providing students with a variety of learning experiences to develop their physical and interpersonal skills in a supportive environment.

The department programs aim to provide students the opportunities to improve their individual skills, teamwork, leadership and game strategies. In addition to skill development students have the opportunity to enhance their performance and participate in Athletics Carnivals, Inter-school Lightning Carnivals, and after-school sporting competitions.

Our Health Education program is delivered across the school from years 7 – 10 in one session per week. The focus is on educating students to make informed decisions about their health and well-being and building positive relationships.

The PE Department also offers Health and PE Studies courses in Year 11 and 12 for those students who have a keen interest in physical activities. These include General, Foundation and Certificate Courses.
