Connections: Students work in small groups to organise, plan and implement a series of four lessons teaching of a sport to a junior or middle school class. This component includes a 2000 word evaluative journal
Personal Endeavour: Students work individually to research, implement and design a task relevant to an area of personal interest. This includes a 2000 word report.


Students’ performance will be determined according to the subject’s Performance Standards, as outlined by the SACE Board. Grades A+ to E- will be used for reporting purposes.

School-based Assessment:

Note: *A full day surfing excursion is a compulsory practical that will run off site at Goolwa and incurs an additional, all-inclusive cost of $70-100. This will cover all instructor charges, transportation and equipment hire
