Sports and Physical Education (PE)

Elementary Program

Our Elementary Physical Education (PE) philosophy is to develop skillful, joyful, lifelong learners. Our Pre-Kindergarten through Kindergarten curriculum follows a progressive skill-based development model in physical activity, resiliency, and personal fitness.  Students learn to develop basic gross and fine motor skills through small activities that will help develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to try sport.  The Grade 1 to Grade 4 curriculum continues to develop skills through a progressive movement model with a larger focus on sport-specific skill acquisition. Our health curriculum for these grades focuses on personal health, personal safety, and healthy lifestyle choices.  Individual fitness is a large focus during these years with our students working on improving their personal best.

Throughout Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 4 our Health curriculum teaches the skills needed to make good decisions for the students’ individual health.  Our PE curriculum is a fun, skill-based program that provides opportunities for students to develop an enjoyment of physical activity.

Middle School Program

Our Middle School PE program continues to build upon the skill-based foundations gained in the elementary program. Students begin to make the connection between skills, concepts, and strategies of sport. Our health programming continues to explore nutrition, mental health and substances, personal safety, and human development while reinforcing the development of the student.  

The Grade 5 and 6 curriculum at TCIS engages students by providing opportunity to participate in new roles as player, coach, statistician, sports writer, and referee.  Through exploring these roles students are able to acquire new problem solving, numeracy, communication, conflict resolution, and listening skills. Our elementary program works with classroom teachers to expand the cross curricular learning of the student.

Our curriculum develops the health-related and skill-related components of fitness use of training principles to enhance fitness. Students also learn how to set goals, develop action plans, use self-assessment tools, and develop effective personal reflection.

High School Program

The High School PE curriculum continues to develop confidence and competence in sport. The focus of the program is the exploration of transferable movement skills in a variety of sports (basketball, volleyball, badminton, football, swimming, and softball) and activities. Students will begin to apply their understanding of activity components, streamline their personal fitness and activity interests, and explore new activities that are competitive and recreational.

Our health programming continues to explore nutrition, mental health and substances, personal safety, and human development through relevant and genuine teaching practices.
