MYP PHYSICAL EDUCATION 

The physical education curriculum, as defined by Alberta Learning, requires students to be assessed in the following four areas:

  • Activity: Students will 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: Students will understand, experience and appreciate the health benefits that result from physical activity.
  • Cooperation: Students will interact positively with others.
  • Do it Daily For Life!: Students will assume responsibility to lead an active way of life.

 

The physical education program is set up to provide students with an opportunity to experience activity in a variety of different ways and environments. Some of these activities and environments may be viewed as non-traditional for physical education, but nevertheless are valid activities that will be used to complete the specified outcomes provided by Alberta Learning. 

These activities will help students develop positive attitudes towards a healthy, active lifestyle and promote personal growth and social responsibility both in the classroom and within the community. Students will gain knowledge to help them in future settings and to maintain a healthy lifestyle beyond the scope of the classroom. Louis St Laurent’s P.E. Department stresses the importance and belief that all students will be included and expected to participate to the best of their ability.
