Physical Education

Physical Education supports students in acquiring skills through a variety of developmentally appropriate movement activities. Students gain experience within various physical activities assisting them in further understanding health and wellness benefits, promoting positive interactions and leading an active lifestyle.

Program Course Sequence

Program Overview

In Physical Education, students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. They develop life skills for the personal management of health, for the use of physical activity as a strategy for managing life challenges, and practice the ability to work positively with others. Students will acquire skills through a variety of developmentally appropriate movement activities such as: dance, games, gymnastics, individual activities, and activities in an alternative environment (e.g. aquatics, bowling, golf).

Course Evaluation 

Evaluation occurs during each activity unit and marks are calculated on a cumulative basis throughout the duration of the course.  Each unit of activity will be evaluated based on the criteria listed below. Percentile determination for each unit is predetermined and consistent for all teachers teaching Physical Education. (Self-Evaluation rubric is attached) 
 
Attitude & Leadership – attitude, sportsmanship, respect, encouraging, preparedness     
Effort – skill development, hustle, contribution in gameplay, attempting activities to the best of one’s ability   
Skill – demonstration of effective, sport-specific movements and spacial awareness during activity, demonstration of gameplay strategy & correct skill usage during activity       
Applied & Theoretical Knowledge – as demonstrated during game play and through discussion    

Service Hours

P.E. 20/30 students are required to complete 5 service hours. Volunteering has a positive benefit to students, school programs and the community. Opportunities will be made available throughout the year. Members of athletic teams will be credited with a maximum 2.5 hours for participation on school teams. Completion of service hours is compulsory. If service hours are incomplete the student will receive a mark of 40%, thus no credits earned. 

Transportation

Transportation to all off-site location is provided by our school bus only!  Students missing departure times are not allowed alternative transportation and/or to drive themselves to the off-site location. They must remain at the school and follow their teachers’ directions/assignments. 

Fitness Centre 

Students who wish to use the fitness centre after instructional hours may do so by showing their ID cards. The fitness centre is open after school, Monday through Thursday. (Dependent on supervision by LBHS staff)
