Physical Education

CBe-learn senior high Physical Education courses (PE 10, PE 20 and PE 30) have rigorous requirements for activity, supervision and coursework. They require students to be highly self-directed and motivated.

Required Physical Activity

Students are expected to complete their activity component under the supervision of a qualified supervisor who can verify their activity in their activity log. Activity is defined by five categories: aerobic activity, strength training and team/individual activity. Student must complete and verify a minimum of 25 hours of participation in each category, for a total minimum 85 hours. (For the 3-credit PE 10 course, the requirement is a total of 50 hours.)

Students will be expected to participate in a variety of developmentally appropriate movement activities consistent with the Alberta Education Program of Studies, including: dance, games, types of gymnastics, individual activities in an alternate environment; e.g. aquatics and outdoor pursuits.

Required Coursework


Quizzes, based on course content, are available in online format.

Citizenship Project

The intent of the Citizenship Project is to immerse students in the practical aspects of the course. The instructor is looking for students that engage in activity at a higher level, for example, achieving certification in First Aid/CPR, coaching, referring or instructing or volunteering or organizing a major athletic event.

Activity Log/Journal

Students are expected to post a weekly update on physical activity progress (hours/types of activities participated in).

Participation: Discussions and Drop-ins

The instructor and students will lead a number of discussions throughout the course. There may be optional drop-in opportunities during the course.

Orientation & Fitness Evaluations

After registering for PE 10, 20 or 30 with the Guidance Counsellor, students must then sign up for a Parent Orientation & Student Fitness Assessment. This sign up will be available once the student has been granted access to their Phys. Ed. course.

For each course (PE 10, 20 and 30), students are required to attend a pre and post fitness evaluation. This evaluation will help students recognize their strengths and set goals with an instructor to work on areas for improvement. Students are required to return near the end of the course for a post fitness assessment that will help to determine how successful the activities have been in terms of improving overall physical fitness. This is mandatory for all students.

The Orientation & Fitness Assessment will take place at Lord Shaughnessy High School (2336 53 Ave. SW.)
