Year 7 Athletics extension program


​Beerwah State High School offers an exciting Athletics extension program (AEP) to cater for the needs of talented athletics and sports students. This is a four year program running from year 7 to year 10.

The Athletics extension program is an enhancement of the Athletics in physical education program that was first offered in 1997, resulting in twenty Sunshine Coast Central District Athletics Championships.

Our aim is to provide a flexible but challenging environment to make talented athletes fitter, more skilful and better educated, both on and off the field. Athletics extension is studied for two 70 minute periods per week in year 8. In years 9 and 10, the class completes four 70 minute lessons. As part of the transition to the senior school in year 10, Athletics extension is studied as an elective subject.
