What is an Asia-focused Health and Physical Education curriculum?

The Australian Curriculum for Health and Physical Education provides opportunities for students to learn explicit content about Asia.

[It] enables students to appreciate and engage with diverse cultures, traditions and belief systems of the Asia region through the development of communication and interpersonal skills that reflect cultural understanding, empathy and respect. Students examine the meaning of health and the mind-body-spirit connection across the cultures of the Asia region through wellness practices. These include physical activity and traditions of medicine and healthcare.

In Health and Physical Education, students recognise the influence within Australian culture of traditional and contemporary movement activities from the Asia region. While exploring health and movement in the context of Asia, students develop an understanding of the links between humans, environments and active living practices.
