Year 9/Year 10 Health and Physical Education students:

  1. Many of you would have received a workbook that covers 4 weeks’ worth of tasks to complete.  There is a total of 12 tasks and you can choose 3 tasks to complete per week.  This rubric is the same as is in the workbooklet sent home before Level 4 lockdown:
  2. If you have not received these booklets please refer to our ISO JUNIOR HPE powerpoint slides.  Each slide has a series of Health and PE related activities that students can work through at their own pace with or without electronic devices.  The aim is to complete 1 slide per day.  This has a specific focus on movement, physical activity, mindfulness, creativity and Hauora. 
  3. Please click on the link from ATTITUDE –  This organisation are dedicated to equipping teenagers with the information and skills they need to negotiate the adolescent years and build meaningful lives.  James Cook High School has a strong working relationship with this organisation and are often talking with rangatahi about a variety of life and health related topics throughout the year.  This topic focuses on ‘getting along with your family” in an informative and entertaining way.

This is the second Youtube link from the group Attitude.  This weeks’ video talks about how students can LOOK AFTER THEIR HAUORA.  This clip focuses on 2 dimensions of Hauora including Taha Tinana – Physical Wellbeing and Taha Wairua – Spiritual Wellbeing.  This could be an opportunity for students to watch and discuss how these aspects of our wellbeing might look like in their bubble.


Welcome to the faculty for Physical Education and Health.

The four strands across the faculty are:

Personal health and physical development, in which students develop the knowledge, understandings, skills, and attitudes that they need to maintain and enhance their personal well-being and physical development.

Movement concepts and motor skills, in which students develop motor skills, knowledge and understandings about movement, and positive attitudes towards physical activity

Relationships with other people, in which students develop understandings, skills, and attitudes that enhance their interactions and relationships with others.

Healthy communities and environments, in which students contribute to healthy communities and environments by taking responsible and critical action. The seven key areas of learning included in teaching and learning programs at James Cook High School are:

  • mental health
  • sexuality education
  • food and nutrition
  • body care and physical safety
  • physical activity
  • sport studies
  • outdoor education.

At Year Nine and Year Ten, the students get an opportunity to experience the faculty for physical education and health. By Year 11 or Level 1 they will choose if they are taking Physical Education and Health for the NCEA credits. At this time, they will have a choice across the areas of Physical Education, Outdoor Education, Sports Leadership, and Health.

We offer a wide range of sports at James Cook High School and students are encouraged to participate in them. Each year cumulates in the School Sports awards.
