The Physical Education Program at Hampton Park is designed to prepare students for a healthy and active lifestyle through the development of skills, knowledge, and positive attitudes. Emphasis is placed on teamwork and sportsmanship, which incorporates our school values and encourages students to work in teams effectively to achieve their learning goals.
To achieve learning goals children are guided through a range of basic fundamental motor skills where they experiment with a range of techniques and begin to refine successful movement patterns. More complex skills are then introduced and children then attempt to apply appropriate skills in ever increasing challenging environments, such as team games in a wide variety of sports.
