Physical Education & Wellness

Physical Education courses help students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to lead active, healthy lifestyle. Career and Life Management (CALM) equips them with the necessary skills to make healthy, well-informed decisions and choices throughout their lives.

Both Physical Education 10 and CALM 20 are required to attain an Alberta High School Diploma, and both subjects can be taken together at CFL Summer School. If desired, students may also enrol in Wellness 10, where they can earn additional credits in CPR and Nutrition. Students with a keen interest in health and wellness can also enrol in Sport Performance 15.
