National PE & Sport Week is a celebration of the importance of physical education and health education, in addition to kicking off National Physical Fitness and Sports Month.
Health and physical education is a critical component of a well-rounded education. It’s where students learn:
- Critical personal and social skills to help manage daily tasks and challenges;
- Important character values such as resilience, fairness, respect, equality, and inclusion; and
- Fundamental motor skills needed to participate in physical activity, which is vital at all ages and stages of life.
During National PE & Sport Week, we’d like to give a big shout out to our nation’s health and physical education teachers for their work teaching life-changing skills to young people. Thank you!
It’s easy to celebrate National Physical Education & Sport Week at YOUR school!
