The health and physical education curriculum promotes important educational values and goals that support the development of character. These include striving to achieve one’s personal best, equity and fair play, respect for diversity, sensitivity and respect for individual requirements and needs, and good health and well-being, these values are reinforced in other curriculum areas, as well as by society itself. Working together, schools and communities can be powerful allies in motivating students to achieve their potential and lead healthy, active lives.
We feel that content and the setting of learning in health and physical education make it unique in a student’s school experience. Students are given opportunity to learn by doing. Our students are given opportunities through experiences in the program and participate kinesthetically in activities in a gymnasium, in an open space- in and outside of the school.
