The Physical Education component in Grades 10 to 12 aims to develop learners’ physical well-being and knowledge of movement and safety. It encourages learners to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle.
Physical Education also aims to develop learners’ confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation. These, together with the nurturing of positive values and attitudes in physical education, provide a good foundation for learners’ lifelong and life-wide learning.
All Physical Education periods will focus on practical physical and mass participation in movement activities for enjoyment and enrichment purposes, with a view to encouraging learners to commit to and engage in regular physical activity as part of their lifestyle.
The Physical Education component in this phase focuses solely on three different movement sections:
- Games and sport; and
- Recreation and relaxation.
