Physical Education

The starting point for a physical education curriculum is the belief that we are called to honour God with our bodies.  That means that the main aim of physical education is to help students develop and maintain acceptable motor proficiencies, health fitness, and physical skills in a variety of activities.  This is particularly important since human beings are a unity and their physical health affects their emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.  Students must become sensitive to the potential of their bodies, how they function, and how they should care for them.
