Physical and Health Education

The aim of Physical and Health Education in the MYP is to facilitate the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes that will contribute to a student’s healthy and balanced lifestyle throughout their school years and beyond.

Students engage in a variety of physical activities that allow them to explore physical and health education concepts. These activities include team sports, applied fitness activities, aesthetic movement, aquatic activities and international/ cultural experiences. The breadth of the program promotes effective participation in a variety of movement contexts and values the achievement and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle. As well as movement skills, all units of work offer opportunities to build positive inter and intrapersonal skills to develop social responsibility as outlined in the attributes of the IB Learner Profile.

This subject enables students to establish links between different areas of experience through the key concepts of Change, Communication and Relationships. Through an inquiry based approach, these concepts enable students to organize physical and health education facts and topics in relation to their learning about themselves, their communities and the world around them.

The physical and health education program also seeks to promote students participation in extracurricular physical activities such as Black Kites Sport teams, House Sports, and after school activities.
