A QDPE program includes daily curricular instruction for all students (K-12) for a minimum of 30 minutes, purposeful, well planned lessons incorporating a wide range of activities, application of various wholistic assessment strategies, a high level of participation by all students in each class and an emphasis on fun, enjoyment, success, fair play, self-fulfillment and personal health.
QDPE ensures that all children have the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and habits that they need to lead physically active lives now, and just as importantly, into the future. A QDPE school is one that values the importance of physical education to the complete learning of our children, and has engrained QDPE and physical activity into the foundation and culture of the school environment.
