Physical Education is "education through the physical". It aims to develop students’ physical competence and knowledge of movement and safety, and their ability to use these to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It also develops students’ confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation. These, together with the nurturing of positive values and attitudes in PE, provide a good foundation for students’ lifelong and life-wide learning.
Curriculum development is an on-going improvement process. In the PE KLA, we would
- build on strengths to inspire curriculum changes in the light of the new educational trend;
- cultivate in students generic skills, positive values and attitudes, in addition to physical competence, for lifelong and life-wide learning; and
- encourage schools to make flexible use of time, space, resources and facilities available to enrich their school-based curriculum.
