The main objective of the senior PE classes is to continue to develop student interest and enjoyment in pursuing lifelong physical activity. This will be achieved through participating in individual and initiative/cooperative tasks as well as group activities from the four game categories: target games, net/wall games, striking games and territorial games. All of our experiences in class are designed to achieve an enhanced awareness of technical and tactical skills across all games. Throughout this course, we will be exploring the physical activity opportunities that exist in the Greater Vancouver Area through various field trips.
