PE & HEALTH
The Physical Education (P.E.) and Health program at Colac Secondary College is designed to increase and maximise student participation, whilst creating a non-threatening environment, one that is conducive to learning. Our aim is to teach students about the value of physical activity and health. It is important that students develop the necessary skills to take control of their own health.
P.E. and Health are integrated as a core subject for Years 7–9. At Years 7–9, students undertake 5 lessons per 3-week teaching cycle. In Year 10, students choose from a variety of elective subjects. Year 10 students have 10 lessons per 3-week teaching cycle.

At the end of the unit, students also participate in a challenging sailing camp to test their newly-acquired leadership skills.
