Philosophy, aims and goals of Physical Education

The philosophy of PE in YTSS is to encourage participation in a student-centred teaching curriculum as opposed to a teacher-centred teaching curriculum. The teacher facilitates learning activities that have the potential to provide students with a holistic education, thus promoting social-emotional, physical, and cognitive learning outcomes. The emphasis is on active learning that involves the processes of decision-making, social interaction and cognitive understanding for our students.

PE Learning Outcomes for YTzens:
