Physical Education and Health

Competency 1: To perform movement skills in different physical activity settings

In Physical Education and Health, students develop a repertoire of knowledge and motor skills that will allow them to gradually practise various types of physical activities safely on their own, be it in a gymnasium or outside of school. Teachers help students better understand concepts of time and space as well as principles of balance and coordination so that students can apply these concepts and principles in action. Teachers also help students perform a range of motor skills that will allow them to position themselves, move around and handle objects and implements in different types of physical activities.
