Physical Education

Physical Education is a subject mandated by the government (Article XIV, Section 19 of the 1987 Constitution). It focuses on the physical fitness development of children and adolescents. Its goal is to create physically literate individuals who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to engage in healthy physical activity for the rest of their lives. Physical Education develops students’ ability and confidence to participate in a variety of physical activities that are an important part of their lives both in and out of school (PE).

Physical education’s four goals are improved physical fitness, appreciation for physical activity, sportsmanship development, and improved social skills.
