Hunter Sports High School's Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) faculty is made up of enthusiastic teachers who are committed to helping all students achieve to their potential. 

Our programs focus on giving students the knowledge and skills required to develop lifelong health habits, promote active lifestyles, enhance personal development and wellbeing as well as maximise movement potential through a range of fun, engaging and challenging practical activities.


In addition to the mandatory PDHPE curriculum for Years 7-10, we also offer a range of electives in Stages 5 & 6 that allow students to pursue interests in sport, coaching, health and recreation which can support future study or career pathways.


Stage 5 Electives:

  • Physical Activity & Sport Studies (PASS)
  • VET Certificate II Sports Coaching
  • Child Studies
  • VET Certificate II in Sports Coaching (Year 10 only)


Stage 6 Electives:

  • Sport Lifestyle and Recreation
  • VET Certificate II Sports Coaching (This is a Board endorsed course. Completion will see students achieve a qualification - Certificate II - in sports coaching)
  • Community and Family Studies (CAFS)
  • VET Certificate III in Fitness


The PDHPE faculty also delivers the mandatory Stage 6 'Crossroads' program in Year 11. This program is a compulsory course aimed at education around the issues of drug use and relationships. At Hunter Sports High School, we provide our students the opportunity to explore these issues and build relationships through our annual Year 11 snow trip (pictured above). This has proven to be a successful and rewarding school experience that the PDHPE faculty at Hunter Sports High will endeavour to sustain.
