“If my dreams can happen to me, your dreams can happen to you. Champions are not made on the track or field; champions are made by the things you accomplish and the way you use your abilities in everyday life situations.”
WHAT IS HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION?
In health and physical education, the focus is on the wellbeing of the students themselves, of other people, and of society through learning in health-related and movement contexts.
WHY STUDY HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION?
Through learning and by accepting challenges in health related and movement contexts, students reflect on the nature of well-being and how to promote it. As they develop resilience and a sense of personal and social responsibility, they are increasingly able to take responsibility for themselves and contribute to the wellbeing of those around them, of their communities, of their environments (including natural environments), and of the wider society.
