In Physical Education the focus is on movement and its contribution to the development of individuals and communities. By learning in, through, and about movement, students gain an understanding that movement is integral to human expression and that it can contribute to a persons pleasure and enhance their lives.  They learn to understand, appreciate, and move their bodies, relate to others, and demonstrate constructive attitudes and values.  This learning takes place as students engage in play, games, sport, exercise, recreation, adventure, and expressive movement in diverse physical and social environments.  It fosters critical thinking and action and enables students to understand the role and significance of physical activity for individuals and society.

In Health Education, students develop their understanding of the factors that influence the health of individuals, groups, and society.  Students will develop the competencies for mental wellness, reproductive health, positive sexuality, and they will develop an understanding of their nutritional needs.  They will build resilience through strengthening their personal identity and sense of self worth, through managing change and loss, and through engaging in processes for responsible decision making.  They learn to demonstrate empathy, and they develop skills and understandings to take critical action to promote personal, interpersonal, and societal wellbeing.
