Physical and Health Education 8 Course Overview
Daily physical activity helps us develop movement skills and physical literacy and is an important part of healthy living.
Learning about ourselves and others helps us develop a positive attitude and caring behaviours, which helps us build healthy relationships.
Knowing about our bodies and making healthy choices helps us look after ourselves.
Good health comprises physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
This is an ongoing year long course without boundaries like at any regular school. By this I mean you can register anytime during the year (including summertime) and you have a year to complete the course although it should never take that long. It follows the 4 main concepts called core competencies that the Ministry of Education has put forward for the new curriculum and these are the 4 units of the course. Once you register, you will have partial access to the course which will be enough information for you to complete the first assignment information called the StartUp Assignment. Once this is marked, you will be activated and have full access to the course so you can complete all four units entirely online.
