Physical Education

Physical Education is the instruction in the development and care of the body ranging from simple callisthenic exercises to a course of study providing training in hygiene, individual sports, cooperative games and the performance and management of team sports (athletic games).

The purpose of physical education involves more than training the body, or physical fitness, but is based on the understanding that fitness and physical training helps the mind. For young children play has been recognized as a valuable, even essential, component of learning.
