At Health and Physical Education Online, you will find a range of Ministry curriculum focused policy and guidance, teaching and learning resources, professional development support, and a range of links to visit for additional help.
Over the coming year, we will continue to add and highlight our latest guidance and resources related to health and physical education and wellbeing.
Health and physical education is about taking action to improve the wellbeing of yourself, other people and wider society. This site offers guidance, supporting resources, and information for teachers of health and physical education in Aotearoa.
Health and physical education encompasses three different but related subjects: health education, physical education, and home economics.
By exploring health-related and movement contexts, ākonga learn:
- that wellbeing is a combination of the physical, mental and emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of people’s lives
- to think critically and make meaning of the world around them
- how to bring about sustainable health-enhancing change for individuals, communities, and society.
