    Introduction to the Learning Area Outcomes
    A definition and description of the purpose of learning within the learning area:
    Through effectively engaging in the learning area of Health and Physical Education learners will experience a number and range of rich contexts for learning that will contribute to their overall  personal development, learning and wellbeing as well as the wellbeing of others. More specifically, learners will have opportunities to learn in and through a variety of meaningful and enjoyable contexts, including physical activity and sport and hands-on food production activities that aim to sustain, promote and enhance their physical, social, emotional and psychological health.
