Health & P.E.
The Primary School nurse provides students with health instruction each year on topics such as nutrition, dental health, and hygiene; and the counselor teaches classes that help students to better understand emotions and the responsibilities of friendship.
The physical education program helps children to understand and appreciate their bodies, develop motor and coordination skills, and appreciate physical activities. Teachers are aware of the different maturation levels within each class and are careful to encourage and reward individual growth rather than to promote competition. The program promotes essential basic-skill development while encouraging a high level of interest in physical, recreational activity.
