Level 2 Physical Education
Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Melrose
Theory topics covered will include anatomy, biomechanics, training principles and methods, sport psychology, leadership, risk management, social responsibility, and investigating the impact of a large sports tournament e.g. Rugby World Cup, America’s Cup, Olympics. Practical activities will be from a selection of the following: rail trail, Naseby mountain bike tracks, white water rafting, table tennis, and adventure-based learning.
The content of the course is approximately 40% practical and 60% classroom based using a variety of teaching methods. Some time beyond the classroom will be required for trips and field work.
A course contribution cost of $150 (estimate) would be requested to help cover the cost of the Dunedin component to the mountain biking (AS91330) and risk management (AS913330 achievement standards.
A course enrichment opportunity for AS91330 and AS91333 exists where students can attend a four day mountain biking trip to Central Otago concluding in the mountain biking tracks of Naseby which would require a payment of $200 (estimate) before commencement of the trip.
