Personal development, health and physical education

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 between 1.5 and 2.5 hours per week in Kindergarten to Year 6.

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.

Sport and physical activity

Ashbury Public School is involved in summer and winter primary school sports association (PSSA) competitions for boys and girls in Year 3 to Year 6. The sports offered vary from year to year based on student involvement.

Ashbury Public School also holds weekly sports sessions for all students in their year group where involvement and skill development are encouraged.
