Physical Education | Health

The purpose of Physical Education (PE) and Health Education is to promote the physical, mental, and social well-being of students. These subjects aim to instill lifelong habits that support healthy lifestyles and overall wellness. Through PE, students engage in physical activities and exercises that improve their physical fitness, motor skills, and coordination. They learn about the importance of regular exercise, teamwork, and sportsmanship.

Health Education provides students with knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about their health and well-being. It covers a range of topics such as nutrition, mental health, sexual education, substance abuse prevention, and personal hygiene. The goal is to empower students to understand their bodies, make healthy choices, and develop positive habits that contribute to their physical and emotional health.

Together, PE and Health Education help students develop physical literacy, resilience, and a sense of responsibility for their own health. These subjects not only contribute to the immediate well-being of students but also lay the foundation for a healthier and more active adulthood. Additionally, they promote self-confidence, stress management, and social interaction, fostering a holistic approach to personal development.
