Personal Development, Health & Physical Education

... PDHPE empowers all students with knowledge and skills to sustain long-life physical activity as a foundation for healthy, productive and fulfilling lives ... 

The purpose of Personal Development, Health and Physical Education is to provide opportunities for students to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to understand, accept and lead a healthy lifestyle.

In so doing, students significantly develop their capacity for understanding how communities can establish healthier conditions of living.

Goals

  • develop in students an ability and commitment to make and act upon informed health decisions at a personal and community level.
  • provide opportunities for students to explore and develop self-esteem and skills related to communication, decision making, values clarification and interpersonal relationships.
  • provide opportunities for students to participate in regular, frequent and planned physical activities.
  • match learning experiences to the needs, interests, the stages of physical, emotional and social development and cultural development of the students.
  • learning experiences that enable students to be active rather than passive learners.
  • model practices that are supportive of a healthy lifestyle at a whole school level.
  • develop an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect.
