Middle Years Programme curriculum
The aim of physical education in the Middle Years Programme is to facilitate:
- emotional, and
- social development.
The aim of this course is to cultivate a healthy and active lifestyle for students. It therefore advocates activities that are not only enjoyable but also contribute to healthy living. Students are helped to develop the motor skills necessary to enable them to participate successfully in a variety of physical activities, and to learn about the nature of physical fitness.
This subject area also serves to promote intercultural awareness, since physical education is a reflection of elements of history, culture and values. It also enables students to establish links between different areas of experience and provides opportunities for different forms of self-reflection, communication and team work.
