The western Sydney PDHPE Network is open to teachers from all schools teaching the K-6 syllabus in the local government areas of Blacktown, Cumberland, Parramatta and The Hills. Each term the PDHPE Network offers a 1.5 hour training session for teachers which is accredited at proficient teacher level by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA).
Local schools host the PDHPE Network which is coordinated by the Live Life Well @ School team. Topics are usually linked to teaching physical education and often include teaching Fundamental Movement Skills, Gymnastics and Dance.
All participants receive a certificate upon completion of this training. Written feedback from attendees is used to determine choices for future sessions.
The network is all about professional development and sharing experiences.

|| Tuesday 26th March 2019 4-5:30pm
This session will explore how to deliver inclusive games for everyone, considering the use of equipment, space, rule adaptations and teaching styles. This workshop is a shared learning space where we will share ideas and support one another to improve the confidence to put in place strategies to make physical activity session more inclusive.
The Live Life Well @ School team will lead the session, sharing some simple approaches, and then part of the session will be a series of group exercises to share adaptations and ideas for successful inclusive games time from you as teachers. The aim is that the session will allow you to feel more confident in providing physical activity for a broad range of learning and physical challenges that your students face.
Those attending the session will be provided with a resource booklet which the LLW@S team will pull together following the workshop. The session should also provide ideas on specialist equipment that you may wish to source following the session as needs require.
