Physical Education

Welcome to the Gym!

Physical Education is an important part of your child's daily education.

The Physical Education program is structured to help teach Physical Literacy (see below for a great YouTube video made by OPHEA Canada) . Individuals who are physically literate move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person. These skills enable individuals to make healthy, active choices that are both beneficial to and respectful of their whole self, others, and their environment.*

All students are expected to take part in the program to the best of their ability! Only students with a valid medical excuse (provided by a doctor) will be excused from participating in physical education classes as stated by the Department of Education.
