Physical activity is an essential part of life, especially for young people. Integrating physical education into a school’s curriculum is a time-honored practice known to instill healthy habits, reduce stress and improve concentration. Regular activity also helps develop confidence, collaboration skills and teamwork.
What makes a good education? Perhaps the best education is one that builds on a tradition of excellence while incorporating the necessary changes to remain forward thinking and looking. It’s one that considers the student holistically and provides pathways for their physical, mental and personal development. One that prioritizes values and steadfastness in an environment that encourages strong character and leadership.
"An extra year of school?"
"I'm being held back?"
"Won't I have to take all the same classes?"
Often the idea of repeating a year of school is associated with a negative stigma and looked at as a punishment. However, reclassifying, particularly for a boy, reaps benefits that pay dividends in the future.
