What does movement mean to you? – Sinead Ford 4th Year Bachelor of Physical Education
"From creativity through to the analysis of biomechanics, movement can mean so much - It defines us. As Physical Education students we have had the opportunity to discover this through the PE school at Otago. “Movement through time” as a theme was chosen to help demonstrate the idea of change within the School over its 70 years and how much it has developed as a critical part of student experience as ‘phedders’. From humble beginnings to international exposure the school has changed exponentially however it has always fostered an environment that embraces change. With 70 years down, it is exciting to see where the School will take us next."
