Welcome to the Voorhees Health and Physical Education Homepage!
The Health and Physical Education program contributes to the total development of the individual emotionally, socially, culturally, mentally, and physically. Our curriculum offers “carryover” leisure time activities as part of the total program.
According to N. J. Law, all students must take and pass physical education, health or driver education requirements. Every student must take the appropriate courses each year he/she is enrolled in school.
The Physical Education Program is designed to develop knowledge and basic skills in a variety of lifetime sports and activities. The physical fitness and well being of our students is addressed in all of the courses offered.
We are determined to assess our students’ own particular needs and to attempt to meet these needs by our instruction, facilities, and equipment.
Through the incorporation of a wide variety of selected activities, both of an individual and team nature, we hope to provide a sound foundation for physical, social and emotional fulfillment.
We seek to provide critical situations, which enhance and/or challenge the students’ judgment, responsibility and overall attitude toward themselves and the environment.
The leadership program in physical education is a program designed to gain hands-on experience. The overall purpose is to enhance leadership qualities and learn organizational skills.
The Health program is designed to meet the N. J. state mandated program of Family Life Education.
