Objectives of Physical Education in TSK

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 this to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle.

This can be divided into several objectives:

          To develop students’ confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation.

          To improve students’ knowledge of movement, health and fitness, values on good sportsmanship, sports practice in safety, aesthetic appreciation and leadership training in sports activities.

          To develop an assessment method to evaluate teaching and learning in physical activities and teaching.
