Our goal in Physical and Health Education is to facilitate the development of students so that they may reach their full potential. The physical education program provides opportunities for students to achieve the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that will allow them to attain an optimal quality of life and well-being. We believe each student should have a sound knowledge and understanding of physical fitness and “wellness”.
Lifetime and recreational activities are important components of our physical education unit. It is our hope that all students in every level will have the knowledge and the ability to be life-long learners of personal wellness, which will contribute to a healthy and happy lifestyle. Physical and Health Education in Tzu Chi Secondary school has 4 big areas to be covered, which are team sport (football, basketball, baseball, volleyball), Individual Sport (swimming, athletic, badminton), Aesthetic movement (Gymnastics, dance, Martial arts), and health Education.
The school also provide a lot of activities related to Sport, there are Internal Sport Competitions among our Tzu Chi students using the house system, this event gives opportunity for students to show their talent in sport to play against their friend in Tzu Chi secondary school. School also offer Sport EEP and Sport school team training, Sport EEP is provided for students who like to do sport, and school team training is for students who are good in sport that are prepared to participate in competition. A lot of trophies have been added to our collection from Sport Competitions by our sport school team.
There will be more Sport events and activities next academic year, students will experience different varieties of sport in every term, every class need to form and prepare football, basketball and badminton teams to play in class competitions. If students can experience the thrill of winning and the disappointment of losing early in life through competitive sports, they will be well equipped for the reality of life.
Competition provides motivation to achieve a goal; to demonstrate determination, creativity and perseverance to overcome challenges; and to understand that hard work and commitment leads to a greater chance of success. Students will learn how to cope with disappointment if they lose and to be able to genuinely appreciate the good fortune, talents and abilities of the “winner” and then look forward to the next opportunity to try again.
