For the Physical Education component students will be required to take part in practical classes which examine the primary school curriculum. The key theme will be 'what represents good teaching in Physical Education?' Students will explore issues involving competition in Physical Education, gender, and ways in which the curriculum can be made inclusive rather than exclusive. Implementation and evaluation is undertaken during the school Professional Experience program where possible. 

Primary School Health Education will focus on three areas: curriculum, teaching and learning; school organisation, ethos and environment, and partnerships and services. Students will be encouraged to think critically about what should be taught in primary school health education and how it should be taught. During classes and seminars students will be introduced to a range of school-related health issues with the purpose of examining individual health behaviours within a social and cultural context.
