 PHILOSOPHY

 

We believe that regular physical activity contributes to good health, functional movement, and lifelong well-being. Physical Education makes a significant and unique contribution to the student's overall education by providing opportunities to develop movement skills, knowledge, attitudes and leadership that the student will find useful throughout his or her lifetime. Challenging the student to cooperatively work and play with their peers in team building situations is at the heart of the program. Furthermore, learning is enhanced through participation in class situations that provide challenging, successful and enjoyable experiences for all students in a diverse range of activities. Fundamental to this approach is the development of age-appropriate skills and lead up games and activities that best facilitate student learning and skill acquisition.
