the teachers guide to the NSW PDHPE Syllabus (2018) for Years 7-10
Midway through the year, NESA announced it was releasing a new Syllabus for PDHPE for Years K – 10, which will officially take effect from 2019. Since receiving this news, NSW schools have been busy planning how they will address these changes in the new school year. While NSW teachers are accustomed to changes in curriculum, managing a transition that is as wholesale as this can be an overwhelming task.

That’s why our publisher of the new Jacaranda Active Outcomes PHDPE series, Lucy McLoughlin, took a moment between proofing answers and cross-checking content to share her expert knowledge of the coming changes to the new Syllabus.

In this free, definitive Teacher’s Guide, we explore the overarching objectives of the new NSW PDHPE Syllabus (2018) which offers a more holistic approach that looks at all the dimensions of health rather than just physical and social. We delve into the new structure of the Syllabus including: the five propositions that shape the Syllabus, the three content strands teachers will focus on, and the three skill domains students will develop as a result.

With all this change, you may be thinking where do I begin? To help NSW PDHPE teachers develop their teaching programs, Lucy provides her top three pieces of advice on how teachers can prepare now, and save time in the long-run. Plus, she has outlined how the new Jacaranda Active Outcomes PDHPE series and its complimentary resources can help you navigate these changes.
