Physical Education Level 2
Teacher in Charge: Ms T. Slee
Physical Education Level 2
Physical Education helps students to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies to live healthy and physically active lives at school and for the rest of their life. They learn ‘in, through and about’ movement, gaining an understanding that movement is integral to human expression and can contribute to people’s pleasure and enhance their lives. Physical Education engages and energizes students. It provides authentic contexts in which to learn. Students challenge themselves to develop their physical and interpersonal skills. They experience movement and understand the role that it plays in their lives.
Please note that because 3 out of 5 standards in PED2 and LTM2 are the same, taiohi are not able to choose both PED2 and LTM2 together. They must choose one or the other.
