Health and Physical Education Department
Welcome to the Health and Physical Education Department web page at Vaughan Secondary School. Vaughan's HPE department has designed its courses based on Ministry guidelines to meet the individual needs and interests of students.

Each course in the department is designed to ensure that there is a high correlation among overall physical fitness, academic achievements, and specifically the way students feel and see themselves. Healthy, active students usually manage stressful situations in a more positive way than other students. The teachers feel that students should participate in a variety of activities to better able themselves to make healthy lifestyle choices.

The HPE department gives students the options to learn more about important health topics that are vital for their health and well-being. Topics include: Healthy sexuality, goal setting, decision-making, conflict resolution, nutrition, body image, CPR, substance abuse, mental health and personal fitness. After Grade 9 Healthy Active Living, students may design their own program through electives such as Personal Fitness, Rhythm and Movement, Large Group Activities, Recreational Sports and Outdoor Education. This gives our students the opportunity to learn, organize and prepare for the future.
