PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND HEALTH DEPARTMENT


                                                                        


 

Physical Education is one phase of school work that lends itself to the development of character and fair play.  Opportunities to give, to take, and to cooperate with one another are numerous.  Classes provide the ideal setting for developing the Christian values of fair play and cooperation regardless of ability level.


Health education gives the students an opportunity to realize their responsibility to make their lives meaningful by respecting their mind and body as a precious gift from God.


The basic goal of Health Education is to give the student a basic knowledge of health related problems and try to equip the student with the resources to cope with these problems not only now but in their adult lives as well.
