Year 10 Sport and Fitness

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr C. McMurtrie

The goal of the Sport and Fitness option subject is to work with students who are motivated and keen to develop as athletes and as people. We use the vehicle of fitness to teach values such as resilience and perseverance.
