Level 1 Physical Education

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: M. Parr.

This course will include learning opportunities that create a foundational knowledge of the subject, as intended by the revised NCEA Level 1. The Big Ideas and Significant Learning ( will be the focus and this can then be assessed through the new Achievement Standards. Students will be offered assessment opportunities for a selection of these standards based on their progress through the course and how ready they are. It is expected that all students will be able to attempt three NCEA Level 1 assessments throughout each course for around 15 credits. Kaiako (teachers) are looking forward to developing practical and diverse courses around these features as well as assessments from the new standards in time for implementation in 2024.
