The Place of Health and Physical Education in the Curriculum

The health and physical education curriculum has been designed to provide learning experiences that will help students realize their potential in life. Students will develop:

– an understanding of the importance of physical fitness, health, and well-being and the factors that contribute to them;

– a personal commitment to daily vigorous physical activity and positive health behaviours;

– the skills and knowledge they require to participate in physical activities throughout their lives.

The expectations in the curriculum concentrate on the development of personal fitness, competence, skills, attitudes, and knowledge that will help students deal with the variety of personal, social, and workplace demands in their lives. The primary focus of this curriculum is on helping students develop a commitment and a positive attitude to lifelong healthy active living and the capacity to live satisfying, productive lives.

The health and physical education curriculum also promotes important educational values and goals such as tolerance, understanding, excellence, and good health.
