Primary Online 2023

Join us for this professional development opportunity which is specifically designed for Primary HPE specialists and aims to streamline the demands of teaching Health and Physical Education in primary schools.  We run workshops that are relevant and backed by literature.  The delivery will be online using Microsoft Teams so schools all across Queensland can attend.  

Session 1
The Primary online workshop will showcase specifically selected resources which are available through National Sporting Organisations.  These resources will highlight the ease of implementing programs into the HPE program and how to access them. 

Sessions 2 to 4
Units developed and delivered by experienced teachers in the HPE field will be presented.  A variety of Bands have been selected focusing on delivery across P-6. Participants will move through the unit with the presenter making changes that may suit their own environment.  All units are available for participants to keep and implement at their school!

Session 5

A teacher Q&A will be held to conclude the day allowing participants to delve deeper in to the v9.0 curriculum.
