Physical Education and Health is a broad learning area encompassing the subjects of Food and Nutrition, Outdoor Pursuits, Physical Education, and Health. Our senior students can select these learning areas as standalone subjects, while for junior students in Years 7 to 10, Physical Education and Health is a single compulsory subject and Food and Nutrition is offered as an optional subject. Our subjects are very practical and focus on encouraging our students to be active and make smart choices to enhance their wellbeing.

Safety certification

MAC has achieved AdventureMark certification, an internationally recognised safety certification that confirms our school meets the highest levels of safety in adventure activities. This certification recognises our school’s long-standing commitment to safety in its delivery of our nationally renowned Outdoor Pursuits courses and applies to rock climbing and abseiling, white water kayaking, canoeing and rafting, mountain biking, canyoning, and alpine hiking activities.
