Physical Education

The Ministry of Education now supports the inclusion of more than one physical and health education credit per school year. The Physical and Health Education Department at Stamford Collegiate doesn’t take your child’s health and fitness lightly therefore we are pleased to offer a large variety of programs designed to cater to the needs of all students. The emphasis on leading a healthy, active lifestyle is at the forefront of all of our classes. We provide specialty or focus courses in cross fitness & cardio fit as well as the multi sport or activity based courses. Parents are encouraged to make contact with any of the Phys. Ed Department if they have general or specific concerns regarding their child and their program.

All students are encouraged to include at least one physical and health education course into their yearly course load as :
A strong, positive correlation exists between physical activity and academic performance
Physical fitness promotes positive self image
Improved fitness levels increase overall energy levels
Sound body = sound mind
