“Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong.”
John F. Kennedy
Physical Education is “education through the physical”. It aims to develop students’ physical competence and knowledge of movement and safety and their ability to use these to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It also develops students’ 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 PE, provide a good foundation for students’ life-long and life-wide learning.
