Physical and Health Education (PHE) is designed to develop educated citizens who have the knowledge, skills, and understandings they need to be safe, active, and healthy citizens throughout their lives. PHE curriculum focuses on competencies that support life-long learning—competencies that can contribute to personal lives and career aspirations.
The BC Physical and Health Education curriculum contributes to students’ development as educated citizens through the achievement of the following goals. Students are expected to
• develop an understanding of the many aspects of well-being, including physical, mental, and social
• develop the movement knowledge, skills, and understandings needed for lifelong participation in a range of physical activities
• develop knowledge, skills, and strategies for building respectful relationships, positive self-identity, self-determination, and mental well-being
• demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and strategies needed to make informed decisions that support personal and community health and safety
Note: We will focus on exposing our students to many common North American sports which will help to break down cultural barriers.
