Years 10 - 12

Year 10

Physical Education is an elective subject in Year 10. This subject is designed to prepare students for Senior Physical Education offered in Years 11 and 12. Students engage in the study of physical activities, theoretical focus areas and forms of assessment that are evident in the Senior Programme at Townsville Grammar School.

Senior Physical Education (Years 11 and 12)

Physical Education is a General Subject, providing opportunities for students to acquire knowledge, skills, capacities, attitudes and values about physical activity, for those looking to pursue further study post School.


Students learn ‘in, through and about’ physical activity, where the physical medium becomes the conduit through which theoretical learning occurs. 

Physical activities are studied in an integrated way with the following subject matter:

  • Motor learning
  • Psychology
  • Biomechanics & Functional Autonomy 
  • Exercise Physiology 
  • Equity, Barriers & Enablers
