Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.
According to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), students are expected to participate in PDHPE for 300 hours per year in Years 7 to 10.
PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.
The PD/H/PE faculty has an extensive variety of courses available to all students at Glendale Technology High School. Through the PD/H/PE faculty students are able to gain a wide range of experiences in healthy living, sports, outdoor recreation, coaching, administration and first aid.
