PHYSICAL EDUCATION

The Physical Education program develops skills, fitness, social, emotional and leisure awareness. Students are introduced to the skills necessary to play Canadian sports and learn to recognize their personal capabilities and weaknesses. Through fitness testing, they experience the components of physical fitness and learn to monitor and improve their own levels of fitness. They are encouraged to develop a concept of fair play and sportsmanship; to understand competitive and cooperative activities and to know the difference between them; to appreciate other people’s abilities and to interact appropriately with people of different abilities; to control aggression in competitive situations and deal with winning and losing in sport situations.
