Physical Education 11 is designed for the student who has successfully completed their Physical Education requirement in grade 10 and is interested in continuing their development of athletic involvement and active participation.  This course emphasizes on teaching games for understanding within four major categories:  invasion/territory games, net/wall games, target games, and batting fielding games. Through participation in a variety of sport opportunities, students will be encouraged to be effective communicators, while working to develop strong interpersonal, decision-making, coping, and self-management skills.  A small theoretical component will focus on further understanding the four major categories of games as well as the issues surrounding sport as it relates to gender, culture, and career opportunities.


- Students will attend class on time with proper gym gear and safely participate to the best of their ability in all classes. Some activities will not require students to change.
- Unexcused absences will result in a class mark of zero for the class in question.
- Legitimate extended periods of absence may be excusable with proper documentation.
- When ill, students are expected to bring a note from home and make up work missed. (See blog)
- Assisting in the set up and removal of equipment is not only appreciated but also expected.
- No food or drink in the gym, with the exception of bottled water.
- Students are not permitted to use any electronic device during class or in the locker room.
- Swearing, inappropriate language, taunting or disrespect of any kind will not be tolerated. Students need to be respectful of others and participate in a positive manner so everyone has the same potential to successfully complete the course outcomes.
- At the end of class, students need to wait inside the gym until dismissal.
