The Year 7 and 8 curriculum expands students’ knowledge, understanding and skills to help them achieve successful outcomes in classroom, leisure, social, movement and online situations. Students learn how to take positive action to enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. Students demonstrate a range of helpseeking strategies that support them to access and evaluate health and physical activity information and services.

The curriculum for Year 7 and 8 supports students to refine a range of specialised knowledge, understanding and skills in relation to their health, safety, wellbeing, and movement competence and confidence. They reflect on and refine personal and social skills as they participate in a range of physical activities

Making the unit specific for the student you are teaching is crucial in delivery relevant and authentic content. e.g. Years 7-8 (Typically 12-14 years of age) Australian Curriculum

  • Students need opportunities to practise using creative and collaborative processes to work within a group or team to communicate effectively, solve problems, resolve conflicts and make decisions in movement and social contexts.
