Health+Physical Education

Learning area

Health and Physical Education provides students with the opportunity to learn about aspects of health, wellbeing, biology, nutrition and physical activity.

About the selection

This selection of works of art offers students a visual starting point into this leaning area and is informed by topics such as the human body, nutrition, addiction and physical activity, including sport, exercise and play.


These works can be used to introduce critical enquiry into these topics, prompting conversations regarding lifestyle practices, physical activity and social behaviours. These works can also help develop broader awareness of the impacts of both positive and negative health choices on the wider community. Students can be encouraged to consider how these topics might be interpreted across cultures and time and how these concepts might contribute to building healthy, safe and active communities.
