To complete the Physical Education/Health requirements, students must complete 4 grade appropriate courses in grades 9-12. 

In grade 9 and 10, all students will take a course that combines physical activity and health components.  They may also take the Hockey Academy credit as well, but this will be a credit separate from the regular phys.ed./health course.

In grades 11 and 12, most students will take the general physical education/health course.  However, a select number of students will be chosen for either the grade 11 or grade 12 self-directed Phys.Ed. courses.  Students who are chosen for this have shown a high degree of physical activity either with our school teams or outside the school, in activities like hockey, soccer, dance and many others.  Also, we will offer 2 academies in our department:  Basketball and Fitness.  Both of these academies will have a health component so either academy can be used as either a grade 11 or grade 12 credit.  A student cannot use the same academy twice as a credit.

The goal of the Physical Education department is to develop the necessary skills to help lead an active healthy lifestyle.  Through a variety of individual and  team activities, we try to promote teamwork, positive social interaction and self-esteem.
