The ABCD's of Physical Education
The four general outcomes upon which the Kindergarten to Grade 12 physical education program is based state that students will:
Activity - acquire skills through a variety of developmentally appropriate movement activities; dance, games, types of gymnastics, individual activities and activities in an alternative environment; e.g., aquatics and outdoor pursuits
Benefits of Health - understand, experience and appreciate the health benefits that result from physical activity
Cooperation - interact positively with others
Do it Daily... For Life! - assume responsibility to lead an active way of life.
Specific outcomes within each of the above four general outcomes will be assessed using a scale of Excellent/Proficient/Adequate or Limited.
