Physical Education

February 5, 2021

The Physical Education program at Rockwood School is based on the Manitoba K-12 Physical Education Curriculum Guide. The PE/Health Curriculum is designed to give today’s students the knowledge, skills and attitudes they will need to lead physically active and healthy lives. The Curriculum is divided into five general learning outcomes (GLO’s).
Movement – the student will be able to demonstrate competency in selected movement skills, and knowledge of movement development and physical activities with respect different types of learning experiences, environments and cultures
Fitness Management – the student will demonstrate the ability to develop and follow a personal fitness plan for lifelong physical activity and well-being.
Safety – the student will demonstrate safe and responsible behaviours to manage risks and prevent injuries in physical activity participation and in daily living.
Personal/Social Management – the student will demonstrate the ability to develop self-understanding, to make health-enhancing decisions, to work cooperatively and fairly with others, and to build positive relationships with others.
Healthy Lifestyle Practices – the student will demonstrate the ability to make informed decisions for healthy living related to personal health practices, active living, healthy nutritional practices, substance use and abuse, and human sexuality.
Specific Learning Outcomes (SLO’s) in the curriculum are divided up and taught by their physical education teacher, and/or classroom teacher.
The Physical Education Program is divided into Primary (K-3) and Intermediate (4-6) sections. These separate programs focus on the needs and abilities of the students at their particular stage of development. These goals and objectives can be met by a variety of activities in a well-balanced and varied program.
