HPE Week 2022

The benefit of physical activity extends beyond improving only physical health. Regular physical activity will not only improve physical fitness and cardiometabolic health, but will see improved cognition and mental health outcomes. ACHPER’s (Australian Council for Health, Physical Education and Recreation) HPE Week Celebrates the role of Health & Physical Education in schools and communities.

This year we were fortunate enough to have HPE staff and Year 12 leaders deliver engaging and fun activities for a wide variety of interests, including but not limited to: Staff vs Student Volleyball, Table tennis, Badminton, Keepy-Uppy, Netball, Basketball, Hullahooping and Dancing.

The inaugural 'Laps for Days' at Running Club clocked a total of 118kms across the three Running Club sessions. Thank you to our students who braved the cold and wet mornings to run past Byron Bay!

Thank you to our HPE staff and Year 12 leaders who planned and ran these events. It was great to see students from Prep to Year 12 involved and enjoying being active. 

We look forward to National HPE Day on 7 September 2022 with new and exciting activities on offer.
