Therefore every student will have the opportunity to participate in a quality Physical Education program which develops health-related fitness, physical competence in movement activities, cognitive understanding and positive attitudes towards physical activity promoting long term health and physically active lifestyles.
A quality physical education program is important because it provides a learning experience that meets a student's developmental needs, which in turn improves mental alertness, academic performance, readiness and enthusiasm for learning.
