SIRC Newsletter - Physical Education

The broad definition of physical education (PE) is instruction in the development and care of the body incorporating sport and hygiene. PE classes are available any time in life however they are primarily associated with primary and secondary schools and for good reason, 80% of schools provide intramural and interscholastic classes in Canada. There are countless benefits to PE. Children involved in sport do better academically (studies have shown physically active children and those involved in sport score higher in the classroom), develop strong life skills and are less likely to develop severe health problems. This makes it important to ensure classes are as welcoming and inclusive as possible.

This is a good common sense article. Very helpful to one who is just finding the resources about this part. It will certainly help educate me.
