Physical Education helps students to develop the knowledge, fitness levels, motor skills, and personal and social skills to obtain the ultimate goal of a lifetime of physical activity and health.
The IPoly Physical Education Program integrates health and physical activity into one multifaceted program. It covers a wide range of skills and appropriate knowledge base. While movement is both innate and essential to an individual’s growth and development, it is the role of physical education to provide instructional activities that not only promote skill development and proficiency, but also enhance an individual’s overall health. Physical Education not only fulfills a unique role in education, but is also an integral part of the schooling process.
The aim of the program is for students to become physically educated, able to enjoy a wide variety of physical activities, and become committed to life-long health and physical wellbeing. It is a continuous process from 9th to 11th grade with sequential development of knowledge and skills.
