March 3rd 2015 - Physical Education and Health Curriculum

This week, the Ministry of Education released the revised curriculum for Health and Physical Education. The new curriculum is K-12 and it comes into effect in September 2015. The revised curriculum promotes the healthy development - physical, social, emotional and cognitive - of all students.  The curriculum continues to address issues of general health and physical literacy.  It also contains new material related to important issues such as healthy relationships, consent, mental health, online safety and the risks of sexting - and is more inclusive of Ontario's perse population.

 

We  know this is an important topic to parents in our community.  Take a minute to read the Director of Education's webpage and review the list of excellent resources and documents which the Ministry has prepared for parents, including:

  • A Parent's Guide to the Revised Health and Physical Education Curriculum, Grades 1 to 12 
  • A Parent's Guide: Human Development and Sexual health in the Health and Physical Education Curriculum, Grades 1-6 
  • A Parent's Guide: Human Development and Sexual health in the Health and Physical Education Curriculum, Grades 7-12 
  • Quick Facts for Parents: Learning about Online Safety, Including Risks of Sexting 
  • Quick Facts for Parents: Learning about Healthy Relationships and Consent 

I encourage you to take a few minutes to review these documents.  There is lots of useful information and helpful hints to initiating a discussion with your child.
