Using physical activity to teach heart health is an important skill for our students to learn so that they can practice reading their body cues. Year 8 have been participating in fitness testing activities throughout this semester by participating in a range of enjoyable activities which elevate heart rate to understand concepts of the FITT principle and its relationship to maintaining health and developing fitness.

Year 10 are also finalising their Aerobics unit this week. They have participated in choreographing a group aerobics routine allowing them to develop their aerobic fitness through weekly participation and performance.
