Surfing Excursion – VCE PE and Elite Sport Excursion

As part of the VCE Physical Education course and the Year 9 Elite Sport Elective program students headed to Phillip Island to hit the surf. The boys were under the care of Island Surf School, the coaches were fantastic and soon had all the boys up and surfing in one form or another within the first hour. The aim of the excursion is to take learning outside the classroom and to give students the opportunity to create some depth to their understanding of key concepts learned in the classroom and apply these theoretical concepts into practical situations to strengthen learning. Application of key concepts included the musculoskeletal system, cardio-respiratory system and bio-mechanical principles.
