Physical Education

The aim of the Physical Education program is to enable students to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. By participating in activities in the school and within the community, students will gain experience in a wide variety of activities, explore physical abilities and improve fitness levels. Students will understand that fitness impacts well-being and body image. Communicating with others in and through a variety of activities, students will continue to develop a sense of fair play, citizenship, and exercise their leadership abilities. Students will discover the importance and excitement of active living for life; set goals; and challenge themselves to develop the habits of an active, healthy lifestyle.
