The W.J.Mouat Physical Education program is designed to give students a basic understanding of the body’s needs for activity, fitness, and leisure. The goal is to promote the adoption of a healthy, active lifestyle that will continue long after graduation.

As such, students are given the opportunity to assess and improve fitness levels, participate in real-world lifestyle activities such as trail walking/running, fitness room days, swimming, and skating, leisure activities in the community, outdoor education, as well as enjoy the more traditional PE activities such as team and individual sports.
Besides our traditional required courses, we offer courses tailored to student interest in the areas of fitness, outdoor adventure, and leadership.

The mission of the Mouat PE Department is to utilize carefully selected activities to:

  • Encourage the student to develop and maintain a positive attitude to self, others and participation in physical activity.
  • Enable the student to develop knowledge and understanding of factors involved in attaining competence in and appreciation of physical activity.
  • Enable the student to develop efficient and effective motor skills and enable them to apply these skills in a wide variety of activities.
  • Provide for the continued development of physical fitness and the awareness of the importance of being physically fit.
