Physical education area of learning aims to develop student’s competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school.
A high-quality PE curriculum enables all students to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity. It leads to the development of a wide range of skills including the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. In an ambitious Physical Education Department, students learn to perform in a variety of sports activities; to analyse their performance, as well as that of their team; and to make conscious decisions about how to improve based upon their analysis. This process empowers young people to develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and to learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles. Actively discovering a sport to enjoy, and developing an aptitude for it helps teenagers make informed choices about lifelong physical activity.
“PE helps students develop personally and socially. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility. They take on different roles and responsibilities including leadership, coaching and officiating. Through the range of experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.”
