Level 3 Physical Education

13PED
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. King

The content of the course is approximately 40% practical and 60% classroom based using a variety of teaching methods. Time beyond the classroom will be required for trips and field work practicals. Activities completed will be drawn from rock climbing, futsal, examining trends in physical activity in New Zealand; and devising strategies to stay active beyond school and in later life.


Course Costs:

A course contribution cost of $200 (estimate) would be requested to help cover the cost of the Dunedin component to the rock climbing and risk management achievement standard.

A course enrichment opportunity for AS91501 and AS91504 exists where students can attend a four day rock climbing trip to Wanaka which would require a payment of $200 (estimate) before commencement of the trip.
