Physical Education (PE) develops students’ physical competence and confidence and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities. It promotes skillfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. PE provides opportunities for students to be creative, competitive, cooperative and face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes toward healthy and active lifestyles, motivates students to develop themselves, both in an individual way and to work in a team.
Students learn how to think in different ways to suit a wide variety of creative, competitive, cooperative and challenging activities. They learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, ideas and performances to improve their aptitudes, abilities, preferences and make choices about how to get involved in lifelong physical activity.
PE is a vital part of the curriculum and an opportunity to engage and excite children to develop their competitive spirit, learn to respect each other and believe in their own capabilities.
