Shanghai High School International Division Physical Education Department is a main component of the school’s curriculum and an important part of our health education. It consists of a fundamental course, a development course and a research-based course. The courses for grades 1 to 5 are fundamental, whereas those for grades 6 to 12 provide different modules for each student to select. We base our more advanced courses on our students interests and needs. Our aim is to improve the physical fitness level of all of our students. Students participate in sports to help them understand the principles of teamwork/collaboration, competition, and achievement. SHSID will also teach the students to increase their knowledge of health and physical fitness. We hope that physical education classes will help the students gain a positive attitude towards life and a high moral responsibility towards others in society. It is our hope that the students also develop their abilities in sports and enjoy physical activity, now and in the future.
