Physical + Health Education

The philosophy of the Physical Education program is to develop positive self-concept through a variety of movement activities and games.  Additionally, the importance of cooperation, effort, preparation, and knowledge are emphasized while developing physical skills.  Through a sound Physical Education program, students will be able to develop strategies to help them appreciate the significance of lifetime activities.

Physical Education is required of all students at MacDuffie.  Participation in a competitive MacDuffie team sport meets this requirement during that particular season.  Students must pass Physical Education each year in order to graduate.

Please note: Any student enrolled at MacDuffie prior to Grade 11 is required to take one semester of Health in the Upper School.
