Student Course Outline / Parent Information Sheet




PROGRAM AREA:          Healthy Active Living

COURSE:                                 Grade 9 Boys Health and Physical Education               

COURSE CODE:                       PPL 1O1



This course emphasizes regular participation in a variety of enjoyable physical activities that promote lifelong healthy active living.  Students will learn movement skills and principles, ways to improve personal fitness and physical competence, and safety and injury prevention.  They will investigate issues related to healthy sexuality and the use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, and will participate in activities designed to develop goal-setting, communication, and social skills.



A wide range of assessment and evaluation opportunities allows students to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways.  This information provides the basis for reporting student grades on the Provincial Report Card.  Achievement (reflected in a final mark) will be calculated using the following categories:


Final Mark  = 70% Term + 30% Final Evaluation


Term Mark:  will be determined by your participation in activity and health units according to the four key learning areas:  Application, Thinking and Inquiry, Communication and Knowledge / Understanding.


Final Evaluation:  will include the following components:

  • Fitness Appraisals (Feb., Apr., June)                                 10%       
  • Summative Evaluation / Culminating Activities                           20%



The following learning skills will be taught and assessed throughout the course and will be shown on the report card.  Students' performance in these skill areas will not be included in the final numeric mark.  It is important to remember, however, that the development and consistent practice of these skills will influence academic achievement.  These skills include: works independently, teamwork, organization, work habits/homework, and initiative.




UNIFORMS: Change of clothing such as gym short or sweatpants, t-shirt, socks, and proper running shoes. Hats are not allowed in the gym or weight room during class time, but are encouraged for outdoor activities as is sunscreen. Please bring a full water bottle (with your name on it) to class. Undershirts, tank tops, and shirts that expose stomachs will not be permitted. Shirts that are ripped, tank tops, shirts that have unacceptable messages are also not permitted during Physical Education.     


ATTENDANCE: Physical Education is a participation-based course with daily assessment and evaluation. In order to ensure maximum opportunity to experience success students must attend class on a regular basis and participate to the best of their abilities. Daily attendance also improves student’s level of physical fitness and wellness.


Students are expected to:

    • o        Participate actively and consistently in class
    • o        Display respect and support for others
    • o        Demonstrate daily preparedness and adherence to established daily routine
    • o        Demonstrate safe practices with equipment and others
    • o        Demonstrate leadership/initiative in teamwork and independent work
    • o        Be punctual 


SAFETY: Due to the nature of this course, it is imperative that all safety guidelines and rules are followed.  Students not following these protocols will be asked to complete other activities or may be withdrawn from the course.


VALUABLES:  We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen articles. Although the doors are locked, the change rooms are not completely secure during class.  Do Not bring valuables to the change room or weight room. 


ILLNESS / INJURY:  Lack of participation because of illness must be made up.  At the beginning of class, if you are feeling unwell or are suffering from a minor injury, change and talk to your teacher about modified activity. See your teacher to arrange this.  In case of an injury during class, see your teacher immediately.


Submission of work that is original and represents your own efforts. You must speak with teacher before missing a test and late assignment must be accompanied with a note from parent/guardian






Some activities make use of community facilities and will have a fee for the use of those facilities.  Students are expected to pay for these facilities before using.
