Physical Education is a required subject for all students in grades K-12. When students reach the commencement level of the learning standards for physical education, they will have the knowledge and skills to participate in a variety of heclass="img-responsive" althy activities; understand and appreciate the benefits of maintaining a heclass="img-responsive" althful lifestyle; understand how to evaluate and access resources in their community to pursue a heclass="img-responsive" althy and active life; and will be aware of the many career opportunities available in this field.
School vision for education focuses on children and their ability to achieve their individual potential, creating a positive future for themselves, as well as enhancing their quality of life. The Kindergarten to Grade 12 physical education program contributes to the development of life skills for the personal management of heclass="img-responsive" alth, for the use of physical activity as a strategy for managing life challenges, and for a setting within which to practice the ability to work with others. The program provides an equitable opportunity for all students to realize the benefits of participation in physical activity.
Physical activity is vital to all aspect of normal growth and development, and the benefits are widely recognized. Students do not develop automatically the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes that lead to active, heclass="img-responsive" althy lifestyles. Such learning should begin in childhood. Schools and teachers can be prime facilitators in providing opportunities for the development of the desire for lifelong participation in physical activity.
