Health-Related Activity


This aspect of the syllabus is distinctive inasmuch as it attempts to draw together the other physical education
activities, in order to provide students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of healthrelated fitness and to apply its principles to actual participation. Its inclusion is reflective of the view that promotion of skilled movement and fitness is an important means of developing and maintaining healthy lifestyles.
