Health and Physical Education for the Australian Curriculum Years 7&8 Alternate Version
If your school does not cover some of the areas in Health and Physical Education for the Australian Curriculum we offer an Alternate Version as a digital-only option. In this Alternate Version, selected content has been reframed in some chapters.
Health and Physical Education for the Australian Curriculum Alternate Version is designed to support the teaching and learning of the National Health and Physical Education Curriculum in Australian Secondary Schools that follow religious or cultural traditions. The Alternate Version is similar in many respects to the Original Version, which aims to support teachers and students in schools across the nation, however the Alternate Version is modified to address the needs of those schools whose teaching of Health and Physical Education is significantly impacted by a particular religious tradition, together with the characteristic beliefs and values espoused and affirmed by that religious tradition.
