Health, PE and relationships education covers a broad range of topics including mental health and wellbeing, sexuality education, food and nutrition, physiology, physical activity and sport, and outdoor education.
The focus of health, PE and relationships education is supporting the wellbeing of the students. Students learn that wellbeing comes from a combination of the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of life.
There is evidence that teaching students how to maintain and improve their physical and mental wellbeing can lead to enhanced health outcomes. Studying health, PE and relationships can also lead to public health improvements as students learn how to bring about sustainable health-enhancing change for individuals, communities, and society.

The Education Hub's mission is to bridge the gap between research and practice in education. We want to empower educators to find, use and share research to improve their teaching practice, and then share their innovations. We are building the online and offline infrastructure to support this to improve opportunities and outcomes for students.
