Health & Physical Education

The Shenton College Health and Physical Education Program provides a range of compulsory courses in Middle School as well as several elective Senior School programs.

Middle School

The Shenton Physical Education program encourages students to develop their physical and interpersonal abilities, as well as their attitudes towards physical activity in a host of sporting activities that target and develop a range of skills.

Our Health Education program focuses on providing students with the knowledge and skills needed to make informed decisions about their health and well-being throughout life.

Senior School

Year 10 elective courses are designed to establish the particular knowledge and skills which continuing students will build on in Year 11 and 12 VET, General and ATAR courses.
