Personal development, health and physical education

Personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) is mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.

According to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), students are expected to participate in PDHPE for between 1.5 and 2.5 hours per week in Kindergarten to Year 6.

PDHPE provides students with opportunities to explore issues that are likely to impact on the health, safety and wellbeing of themselves and others – now and in the future. Students also participate in challenging and enjoyable physical activity, improving their capacity to move with skill and confidence.


All students at Caringbah Public School are given a wide range of opportunities to broaden their sporting interests and skills. The students participate in programs in dance, athletics and gymnastics as well as a variety of sports clinics during the year.

Our school participates in the Cronulla Zone Primary Schools Sports Association (PSSA) competition in three seasons.

  • Season 1 - (Term 1)  - aussie rules and girl's soccer.
  • Season 2 -  (Terms 2 and 3) - netball and soccer.
  • Season 3 - (Term 4) - basketball and T-Ball.
