Fairvale High School runs weekly Years 7-11 sport using an integrated sporting model. In this model, students in Years 7-11 participate in various sporting activities for two periods per week taught by specialist Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) teachers. To ensure maximum engagement, the PDHPE faculty vary the way sport is delivered in each year.
Some variations throughout the years involve:
streamed classes that have a four-week sport focus and rotation
competitive and recreational sport
class V’s class competitions
House Sport Challenges
World Cup events.
All year groups have a sport scope and sequence and all results, draws and administration of these competitions are coordinated by the Integrated Sports Organiser under the direction of the Head Teacher PDHPE.
