Title Pursuing HPE Outcomes Through Sport Education and School Sport
Abstract/Summary For many people, sport is assumed to be a 'natural' central facet of a Health and Physical Education (HPE) curriculum in schools, and sustained participation in sport is proclaimed as a key curriculum aim. Experience of HPE is unquestionably linked to students participating in sport, during the curriculum and beyond it. For many people outside of schools but also many children themselves, sport is the defining characteristic of HPE. This chapter questions and explores the HPE-sport linkage. Specifically, it considers what sport has to offer as an educational vehicle in the context of Australian primary schools. What role should we be looking for sport to play in our pursuit of HPE outcomes in primary schools? How can we best utilise it as a context and medium for teaching and learning? What HPE outcomes can be effectively addressed in and through structured, focused experiences of sport? What might those experiences look like?
