Physical Education classes have just finished the cooperation unit and are starting into the kicking unit. Students have experienced a variety of activities that involve practicing strategies and teamwork.
To be successful in the activities students had to harmoniously use communication skills in an assertive, calm and effective exchange with others. The varieties of activities also provided students with basic knowledge on target muscle groups worked in certain exercises.

Students have finished the anti-bullying and cooperation unit in which the primary focus was teamwork and respect towards others. After building a foundation of conflict resolution skills students will be implementing their own team decisions in the sport education model.
