Level 3 Physical Education Academic
Teacher in Charge: Mr L. Berghan
What will I learn and how will I learn?
Level 3 Physical Education Academic aims to develop understanding and apply strategies to improve an individual's level of skill in a range of activities; to reflect on their own physical activity experiences now and in the future; to demonstrate quality performance in a sport of choice; examine a current event and its impact on New Zealand society; implement contemporary leadership principles in physical activity contexts and use teamwork to build a sense of confidence, pride and determination to succeed.
Students have the opportunity to gain 19 Level 3 achievement standard credits, all of which are internally assessed. They also have the opportunity to gain Course Endorsement with Merit or Excellence in this subject. To gain an Excellence endorsement, students need to gain 14 or more credits at Excellence level. To gain a Merit endorsement, they need to gain 14 or more credits at Merit (or a combination of Merit and Excellence). Individual teachers will also give students access to their own Google Classroom site. This is a safe digital environment for student learning that enables students to view assessments, ask online questions about work and allows students to catch up on any work/resources that are missed if absent. It also allows research resources to be posted by both student and teacher, encouraging collaborative learning.
Students have the opportunity to gain an extra seven Level 3 credits from Unit Standard 28392 (SCUBA dive in open water to a maximum depth of 18 metres). This is offered via an outside provider. Contact the Head of Learning Area or Ms Flanagan for more information.
