There are two rafts of changes, one commencing on 1 December this year and the other from November next year. This year’s change From 1 December 2016, P2 holders will no longer be permitted to use a mobile phone at all while driving or riding. P2 licence holders will have the same restrictions as Learner and P1 licence holders.

Next year’s changes From November 2017, the following changes will come into force for Learner, P1 and P2 drivers: What do you make of these changes?

Ronie Gonzalez If the women responded like the men did, then they're considered to be rude. Media needs to stop asking these questions of women athletes and show them the same respect they show male athletes. Johnathan Rozie Kat Audrey If female athletes responded to these questions the same way as their male colleagues, they would be labelled as mean bitches. As if it wasnt enough already that they are getting paid a lot less than males, they need to be constantly humiliated with such stupid questions.

Literacy and the NSW Literacy Continuum in PDHPE | PDHPE Curriculum, NSW Department of Education and Communities. The NSW Department of Education and Communities’ Literacy continuum K–10 identifies the literacy skills and understandings regarded as critical to literacy success.

It maps how critical aspects develop through the years of schooling by describing key markers of expected student achievement. The Literacy continuum K–10 is for all teachers of all subjects from Kindergarten to Year 10. The Literacy continuum K–10 is a powerful tool which all teachers can use to strengthen their knowledge of literacy and so deliver a quality program with a strong literacy focus to enhance learning opportunities for their students. In conjunction with the NSW syllabuses, the continuum assists teachers to integrate literacy into PDHPE. Each subject area has its own literacy requirements which students need to master if they are to maximise their achievement in that learning area. Literacy demands in PDHPE There is a direct relationship between a student’s literacy skills and success in PDHPE.
