Physical Education

The primary purpose of physical education is to develop in young people an understanding of the positive impact an active and healthy lifestyle.  The development of appropriate program also provides a unique learning environment where affective, psychomotor and cognitive skills can be developed.  In addition, good health practices, sportsmanship, self-control, self-expression and the opportunity for positive social interaction with peers are fostered.  Here in SMM, We believe that the active, healthy child is more likely to be academically motivated and can establish habits of behavior that will promote lives that are models of wellness.
