Years 9 and 10


Research and proposal: Physical activity interventions

Summary of task

As part of a broader unit of work on community-based health and wellbeing interventions, students researched a range of physical activity interventions/initiatives/community events – for example, workplace walking challenges, social media campaigns, targeted programs to increase participation in sport – to review their effectiveness and to identify innovative strategies that may work in their local community. Students were then asked to evaluate two of the interventions using the provided template and use this information to propose their own physical activity intervention for their school or local community.

This assessment task relates to the focus areas: health benefits of physical activity, and lifelong physical activities.

Achievement standard

By the end of Year 10, students critically analyse contextual factors that influence identities, relationships, decisions and behaviours. They analyse the impact attitudes and beliefs about diversity have on community connection and wellbeing. They evaluate the outcomes of emotional responses to different situations. Students access, synthesise and apply health information from credible sources to propose and justify responses to health situations. Students propose and evaluate interventions to improve fitness and physical activity levels in their communities. They examine the role physical activity has played historically in defining cultures and cultural identities.

Students demonstrate leadership, fair play and cooperation across a range of movement and health contexts. They apply decision-making and problem-solving skills when taking action to enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. They apply and transfer movement concepts and strategies to new and challenging movement situations. They apply criteria to make judgements about and refine their own and others’ specialised movement skills and movement performances. They work collaboratively to design and apply solutions to movement challenges.
