HPE Week at LHC - 07 March 2017

20-24 February was HPE week for Queensland schools. The Lourdes Hill College Stella Netball Challenge offered students the opportunity to celebrate Health and Physical Education by participating in lunchtime games of netball. Students from Year 7 to 9 enjoyed some active and healthy fun where all were welcome for a game. Many students also attended the Staff v Student netball challenge. Much to the delight of teachers and the many students who came to participate, the star teacher team narrowly defeated the student champions.


2017 is the year that women’s sport is appearing at the national level in a way we have not seen before. The new AFLW competition, the revamped Super Netball Competition, Women’s Rugby 7s and Women’s National Cricket and Football Leagues all demonstrate renewed national interest in women’s sport. Prominent female sporting commentators combined with the Federal Government campaign ‘Girls Make Your Move’, build on the interest around women’s sport and inspire our girls to do more physical activity and lead healthy and productive lives.


HPE is a unique and essential learning area which provides ongoing, developmentally appropriate and explicit learning about health and movement. HPE provides opportunities for developing interpersonal and collaborative skills, good communication, and decision-making and goal-setting skills. Movement is a powerful medium for learning and, through it, our students can develop and practise a range of personal, social and cognitive skills. During HPE lessons we focus on lifelong skills of leadership, positive team behaviours, strategies to cope with individual challenges and strategies of resilience and conflict resolution.  Movement is at the centre of our HPE curriculum. Our girls engage in activities which focus on personal strengths and on developing healthy and active habits for now and into the future.


In 2017 the National HPE Curriculum from Years 7 to 10 and the Senior Physical Education curriculum combine to help our young women reach their potential and make a positive contribution in creating a better world. We are proud to say that our students take full advantage of this opportunity.
