The Victorian Curriculum F–10 incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian priorities and standards. The Level 9 and 10 curriculum supports students to refine and apply strategies for maintaining a positive outlook and evaluating behavioural expectations in different leisure, social, movement and online situations. Students learn to apply health and physical activity information to devise and implement personalised plans for maintaining healthy and active habits. They also experience different roles that contribute to successful participation in physical activity, and propose strategies to support the development of preventive health practices that build and optimise community health and wellbeing.
AusVELS provides a single curriculum for levels F-10 that incorporates the Australian Curriculum as it is progressively developed within a framework that reflects particular Victorian priorities and approaches to teaching and learning.
The Shape of the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education provides broad direction on the purpose, structure and organisation of the Health and Physical Education curriculum. Released August 2012.
