The mission of the St. Anne's Physical Education program is to involve students in developmentally appropriate experiences that focus on learning to move and learning through movement. Engaging children in a comprehensive program of fundamental movement, sports skills, physical fitness, and rhythmic experiences is an integral part of a total education program. Daily physical education enhances movement skills, fitness levels, reason abilities, and social-emotional growth.
The value of exercise and motor development is taught in an atmosphere that promotes student understanding and appreciation. Physical Education contributes to self-esteem, responsible behavior, creative expression and group cooperation. The intent of the curriculum is to provide students of all abilities and interests with a foundation of movement experiences that will eventually lead to active and healthy lifestyles.
