In Grade 8 Health and Physical Education, our students will learn to create and modify fitness plans while they learn the difference between health training and skill training. Students will hone advanced skills and strategies in dance and various games, including golf and track and field. They will develop a thorough understanding of the warning signs and risks of substance abuse. An understanding of human development will be consolidated as they learn about gender identity and expression, abstinence and contraception, and healthy relationships. Students will also learn techniques to build positive mental health, and how to combat mental health stigma. This course is designed to be 50-75 instructional hours.
