Physical Education

Students are required to successfully complete three (3) Physical Education courses to complete their DEC. 109-101-MQ, 109-102-MQ and 109-103-MQ. Courses 101 and 102 may be taken in either order, but both must be successfully completed before registering in 109-103-MQ.

109-101-MQ

Lifestyle

Physical Education courses teach students to become more responsible for their own health and wellness. In this course, students examine the relationship between various lifestyle behaviours and health. Through physical activity, students learn the effect exercise has on their physical and mental well-being, and through experimentation with different activities, they can identify those activities which best suit their personal abilities, interests and needs.

Students must come to their first physical education class of each semester fully prepared to actively participate.

ACTIVE LIVING
Prerequisite: 109-101-MQ & 109-102-MQ

The two previous physical education courses are prerequisites to this one, which is an extension and amalgamation of both. Students learn to plan, practice and evaluate activities from a health perspective. They plan and execute their own programs and practice within the context of the realities of their lives. At the completion of this course, students have the necessary tools to take control of their healthy and active futures.
