Personal development, health and physical education

Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.

According to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), students are expected to participate in PDHPE for between 1.5 and 2.5 hours per week in Kindergarten to Year 6.

PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.

Lindfield Public School students benefit from structured and unstructured opportunities to enjoy regular physical exercise through the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) curriculum.

Lindfield students enjoy and greatly benefit from the school's on-site 25-metre outdoor swimming pool which allows students to experience swimming and water activities, led by a qualified swimming instructor, in a safe and structured environment.
