Vision: “Physically Active and Healthy Lifestyles for all Students”

Our fun, comprehensive physical education program includes a variety of extracurricular activities, opportunities for students to pursue lifetime health and fitness, and a focus on fostering social skills that enhance cooperation. Kids who are active benefit in many ways.

Regular exercise:

• Increases energy

• Keeps the heart strong - a healthy heart pumps blood and oxygen 
   throughout the body

• Builds strong muscles and bones

• Keeps the body in shape and at a healthy weight

• Is fun and good for you, too!

Besides enjoying the health benefits of regular exercise, kids who are physically fit sleep better and are better able to handle physical and emotional challenges — from running to catch a bus to studying for a test. Across all grades at MSD, the combined Manitoba Physical Education/Health Education (PE/HE) Curriculum is followed to provide developmentally appropriate lessons for all students. Grade Specific Curriculum Information for Parents may be found by following this link -

The combined Physical Education/Health Education (PE/HE) curriculum was designed to address the 5 major health risks for children and youth. They are:

 

• inadequate physical activity

• unhealthy dietary behaviours

• drug use, including alcohol and tobacco

• sexual behaviours that result in STIs and unintended pregnancies

• behaviours that result in intentional and unintentional injuries

 

The aim of the curriculum is to provide students with planned and balanced programming to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes for physically active and healthy lifestyles. Curriculum content is organized within the following five general learning outcomes:

 

1. Movement

2. Fitness Management

3. Safety

4. Personal and Social Management

5. Healthy Lifestyles Practices
