New Sarepta Community High School
The aim of the Kindergarten to Grade 12 physical education program is to enable individuals to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.
The physical education program emphasizes active living, with a focus on physical activity that is valued and integrated into daily life.
Strong evidence exists that physical activity contributes to the overall well-being of individuals. People of all ages can substantially improve their health and quality of life by including a moderate amount of physical activity into their daily routines. Participation in physical activity contributes to physical, mental and social well-being providing benefits to the individual and the community.
Every student must complete Physical Education 10 (minimum 3 credit) in order to graduate. All students should lead a healthy and active lifestyle, and a great way to start is through a physical education class. Daily active living is the theme of the entire Physical Education program, and is explored through four main outcomes: movement activities, health benefits, interacting positively with others and personal responsibility.
Physical Education 10 is a part of the requirements for a high school diploma. Phys Ed provides you with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.
Physical Education 20 and 30 are optional courses, and involve increased exposure to life skill activities, leadership experience and officiating knowledge.
Every student must complete CALM in order to qualify for a high school diploma. The Career and Life Management course consists of three main units: Careers and the World of Work, Independent Living, and Well-Being (including sexuality that parents may choose to have their child opt out). Students may also have the opportunity to complete up to two extra credits.
