Physical Education is more than just kicking a ball. Physical Education takes the individual aspects of a child and develops each to create a well rounded individual. Physical Education places the learner in the centre and develops the students physically, emotionally and socially in 3 distinctly separate areas:
- Character and employability
- Physical competence
