The Primary Schools PDHPE (personal development, health and physical edcation) Network is a professional development opportunity available to primary school teachers from schools within Sydney Local Health District.
The network aims to improve the confidence of teachers to deliver quality PDHPE lessons, raise the profile of PDHPE as a key learning area, and provide the opportunity for teachers within the region to network and exchange ideas.
The network meetings are offered free of charge each school term. They are conducted at a local school after school hours and focus on the different strands of the PDHPE syllabus. There is a practical focus of the meetings where teachers can learn and practise quality games and skills so they can confidently replicate them in their school environment. Content is developed in response to a survey conducted at previous meetings.
The network commenced in 2010 and the topics so far have included active after schools, athletics games and sports, gymnastics, dance, fundamental movement skills, PE with minimal equipment, inclusive games, Traditional Indigenous games, body image, nutrition in the classroom and many more.
