Welcome to Health and Physical Education
Physical Education at Kavanagh College is all about students learning to improve their Health by
learning in, through and about Physical Education. All students are encouraged to participate fully and to the best of their abilities. The department offers a large range of activities and sporting contexts with a focus on learning through games. Assessment is not always all about how good you are in an activity but includes interpersonal skills and self-responsibility along with the integration of Health topics in Years 7 - 10. In the senior school Physical Education is a full NCEA option course with a large theory and academic content alongside a variety of physical contexts. Highlights include the Year 11 Gridion Tournament, the Year 12 Mountain Bike trip and the Year 13 Duathlon.
