Physical Education

Mission Statement

Physical Education will provide an individualized, developmentally appropriate, and personally challenging instructional program that will advance the knowledge, confidence, skills and motivation needed to engage in a lifelong, healthy, active lifestyle.

"Physical Education is the only subject which, by the very nature of its content, has the potential to affect how a person will feel every moment of every day for the rest of his or her life" Allen Russell.

Rational for Physical Educaiton

Physical Education is about educating students as a whole; mind, body and social. The main goal is to create a Physically Educated Person. A physically educated person: has the skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities, is physically fit, participates regularly in physical activity, knows the implications and benefits of involvement in physical activity and values physical activity and its contributions to a healthy lifestyle. This will enable students to: evaluate their own fitness levels in five different health related fitness areas (body composition, muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility) set fitness goals to maintain or progress towards health enhancing levels of fitness, indentify the activities and sports that will contribute to the program, and use the principles of fitness to develop a program of activities.
