Physical Education in Grades 7 to 9 aims to develop learners’ physical wellbeing and knowledge of movement and safety. It encourages learners to use these to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle.
It 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 engage in regular physical activity as part of their lifestyle.
