Key aspects of Health and Physical Education in the context of The New Zealand Curriculum(2007) are covered in this website.

The focus of Health and Physical Education (HPE) aligns with The New Zealand Curriculum’s (2007) vision for all learners.

The core of HPE is supporting the well-being of the students.

Teaching your students how to improve their well-being and to look after themselves improves their personal health.

Studying HPE can also improve public health. It can be a stepping-stone to health equity.
