Title: Reimagining Health and Physical Education
Description: The United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) identifies that quality health and physical education (HPE) programs support physical literacy, civic engagement, academic achievement, inclusion, and health. The World Health Organization (WHO) states that “Physical Education Programs lay the foundation for lifelong active living, enhance health and well-being and help to prevent and/or reduce future health problems”. This hands-on institute supports the physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being of all students by actualizing the UNESCO QPE document through a renewed vision of HPE. A renewed approach based on current evidence-based practices in Health & Physical Education will uncover how adopting a new approach to delivering quality Health & Physical Education programs can have positive, lifelong impacts on each student.
