South Oakleigh College
In 2013 we proudly announce a new partnership with South Oakleigh College. Youth Action will be developed and run for a class of Year 10 students within HPE. South Oakleigh College have students representing 45 different countries across the globe. We look forward to working with the enthusiastic and dedicated teachers and students at the school to further develop and adapt the Youth Action unit of work. Already an authentic pedagogy, we hope we aim to develop a critical pedagogy in order to understand those barriers that impact physical activity opportunities.

The teachers involved have been willing to give voice to the students through applying a critical action research approach to learning. At the same time they have taken risks to adapt their own teaching and to innovate within the classroom. We would like to thank all the teachers involved for their commitment and support.
