NCEA Level 3 Physical Education S301
Teacher in Charge: R. Redpath
This course offers a mixture of 28 level 3 credits which are mostly Unit Standards. These are provided by the school and moderated by Kapiti Skills Centre. Units include such activities as Rock Climbing, Injury Management, Coaching, Bush Survival, River safety and Badminton. The content and assessment of this course has no overlap with PEDA301 so it is possible for students with an interest in Physical Education to take both courses. Students who desire University Entrance should take PEDA301 as a priority as PEDS301 is a course that will not give you the opportunity to attain UE. Students must have good attendance and be willing to attend days off site to complete the course. It is a great mostly practical based alternative to PEDA301.
