TAS Elementary Physical Education

"Physical Fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity".




In the Physical Education Department, we are excited to see you back and ready for the new year. You will need to be ready for much more learning and be challenged to be successful as a balanced student – to lead, to support sportsmanship and engaged in a variety of units. Your participation and cooperation are the key factors to make this class successful and enjoyable. Go Mustangs!





Grade 4 and Grade 5 students enjoyed their Basketball Activities. They were able to apply the skills they’ve learned and appreciate the spirit of teamwork and sportsmanship.
