Health and Physical Education

The Healthy Active Living Department at Oakville Trafalgar encourages students to take responsibility for their own fitness and health.  It is the program’s goal to promote, through a variety of enjoyable activities, a lifelong healthy lifestyle.  Students who take Healthy Active Living throughout their high school career can be involved in a variety of different sports and athletic experiences. This could include Touch Football, Field Hockey, Rugby, Ultimate Frisbee as well as other interactive games.  Our health programs deal with such relevant issues as healthy sexuality, use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Nutrition and body image are also explored, giving the students the skills to learn about making healthy decision.  Our grade 12 program emphasize lifelong recreational activities, leadership training and the ability to explore sports at a high level.

 

Through athletics students have an opportunity to develop leadership, team building and social skills.  The Student Athletic Association is our athletic support group and is a great opportunity for community service hours and leadership opportunities.

 

Students may take more than one Healthy Active Living Education course for credit in each of Grade 11, and 12.
