Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

Year 13 Physical Education

The Year 13 Physical Education course contributes a possible 19 credits towards Level 3 NCEA and is covered in 4 units of work. Each unit is assessed against one or more Achievement Standards. These units cover creating strategies for lifelong well-being, analysing a skill, training for a purpose and examining an issue in physical activity and its impact on New Zealand society. 

There are no external achievement standards to be assessed in NCEA Level Three Physical Education. In other words, there will not be an exam at the end of the year, so it is vital that you attend regularly, work hard all the time, make the most of the opportunities of class/library time given and hand all assessments in on time.

You will require a good base fitness level to complete the practical components of this course.
