Curriculum Aims and Goals

The aim of Saskatchewan's K-12 physical education curricula is to support students in becoming physically educated individuals who have the understandings and skills to engage in movement activity, and the confidence and disposition to live a healthy, active lifestyle.

The goals of physical education are interdependent and are of equal importance.

The three goals for students from kindergarten to Grade 12 are:

  • Active Living - Enjoy and engage in healthy levels of participation in movement activities to support lifelong active living in the context of self, family, and community.

  • Skillful Movement - Enhance quality of movement by understanding, developing, and transferring movement concepts, skills, tactics, and strategies to a wide variety of movement activities.

  • Relationships - Balance self through safe and respectful personal, social, cultural, and environmental interactions in a wide variety of movement activities.
