Level 1 Physical Education - Wahine Toa (PED101)
Teacher in Charge: B. Hibberd
All Physical Education Level 1 Achievement Standards are internally assessed and most have both a practical and theory component which must be completed. Year 11 PE requires knowledge relating to well-being, knowledge of the human body and how it moves, how a person acquires skills, how the body is perceived by society and how people relate to each other in a group.
The New Zealand Curriculum identifies the following five key competencies in Physical Education: Thinking, Using language, symbols, and texts, Managing self, Relating to others, Participating and contributing. Physical Education contributes to people’s physical health and well-being, growth, personal development, and self-esteem.
Year 11 PE teaches participation in a variety of sports while understanding why it moves in different ways. Gaining an understanding of how society influences people in activities and participation. Being able to assist others in participating in activity, gaining knowledge in teaching and coaching. The course involves a variety of practical and theory lessons these are all linked into their assessments to make learning interesting, relevant and we update the work constantly to make it current.
Physical Education is important as school work: it enhances an individual’s ability to concentrate and maintain focus. It is important for healthy growth and development. Social and emotional benefits according to the World Health Organisation allows students to engage in physical activity through play, games, and sport gives young people natural opportunities to express themselves, develop self-confidence, relieve tension, achieve success, and interact with others as well as learning about the spirit of solidarity and fair play. Team games and play foster students’ development of social skills and provide opportunities for them to learn group membership and leadership skills, attitudes, and behaviours.
Physical activity can build your character because it provides opportunities to develop values such as dedication, honesty, courage, and fairness which is vital for the Sacred Heart student to continue to grow as they reflect the character of our school. Participation in a range of physical activities encourages students and young people to take on challenges. Physical activity also offers them opportunities to develop resilience and realise their potential to excel within the scope of their own abilities. Physical Education makes a person flexible and happy. Doing regular physical lessons enhances an individual’s ability to concentrate and maintain focus, by promoting physical education, teachers can help them improve their concentration/focus. Being active will help in maintaining a healthy body and mind which is important for healthy growth and development. Activities play an important role in the healthy growth and development of the human body. Taking part in physical activities and education allows students to relieve their academic stress and anxiety. Ministry of Education state that physical activity has been linked with improved educational outcomes for students, the more physically active they are the more time they spend on-task and have higher levels of achievement.
In New Zealand, Physical Education and Sport has resulted in increased attendance, higher student engagement and improved assessment results for secondary school students.
