Sport, Lifestyle & Recreation 1 Unit

Contributes to HSC Credential. DOES NOT contribute to an ATAR.

This subject can only be selected if you are completing Studies of Catholic Thought 1 Unit or Studies of Religion 1 Unit.


Sport, Lifestyle and Recreation (SLR) aims to develop knowledge, understanding and skills needed to adopt active and health-promoting lifestyles. It is a Content Endorsed Course offered as a 1 Unit subject in both Year 11 and Year 12. The course has a greater emphasis on practical participation than the 2 Unit PDHPE course.

The Course does not contribute to an ATAR.

For Whom is the Course Intended?

Sport, Lifestyle and Recreation is suited to students who are interested in health, physical activity and performance. It meets the needs of the increasing number of students completing senior school who require a single unit course to finalise their suite of courses.

This course provides an alternative to the more academically demanding 2 Unit PDHPE course, but may also be studied in addition to that course.  This allows students with strong interests in this area to supplement their study of the 2 Unit course with further related theoretical, and particularly, practical experiences.


There are NO formal pre-requisites for this course, however students should not select it unless they are prepared to fully involve themselves in scheduled practical lessons.


Assessment in both courses will involve research and practically based activities, planning tasks and formal school-based examinations.  Emphasis will be on both knowledge and skills.  There is no HSC exam. A student’s HSC Assessment Mark appears on their HSC.


Students must wear appropriate attire for practical lessons.


Subject Costs are included in the College Resource Fee.

Other Costs: Minor transport and court hire costs will be required in relation to some practical modules. Costs are kept to a minimum.

NOTE: There is NO guarantee that this course will continue in Year 12. Continuance is dependent on student numbers and staff availability
