The nature and meaning of physical education

first_imgTo define physical education, we need to say that it is an educational process that aims to improve human development and performance through physical activity. It tends to take place at school through formal lessons, but it also includes informal activity such as play.Physical education is a process of learning, the context being mainly physical. The purpose of this process is to develop specific knowledge, skills, and understanding and to promote physical competence.Different sporting activities can and do contribute to this learning process, and the learning process enables participation in sports. The focus, however, is on the child and his or her development of physical competence rather than the activity.Physical education has a holistic view within a societal context that identifies the interdependence of personal health with societal health and environmental health.On an individual level, physical education is an agent for health and wellness that can promote personal responsibility and control for active lifestyles. However, equally as important, physical education focuses students’ attention on understanding the problems of the social environment that may inhibit them and others from pursuing active lifestyles.Physical education contributes to individual wellness through the innate ‘experience of the moment’ and is reinforced on a daily basis through the knowledge, skills, and feelings of enhanced self-esteem and wellness that develop over time.Physical education is an area in which physical activity is valued and integrated into daily living. It is anchored in three fundamental axioms that lead to these guiding principles:Individual: It recognises that people are active for all sorts of reasons – work, play, challenge and achievement, health and personal development, contemplation and relaxation, creative and cultural expression, and social interaction.Social: It focuses on the individual, but it also recognises that social norms and values, available resources, influential learners, and other factors affect our choices and opportunities for participation. Our choices, in turn, affect these factors.Inclusive: It provides essential ways to express who we are as individuals or groups. It is a right of all, regardless of ability, age, gender, race, ethnic background, religion, socio-economic status, or educational achievement.Importance of physical educationThe importance of physical education and physical activity in our society is encouraged by a number of guiding principles entrenched in active living such as:1. Promotes a way of life in which physical activity isvalued, enjoyed, and integrated into daily life.2. Promotes the principle of individual choice by responding to learners’ individual needs, interests, and circumstances.3. Provides a unique contribution to lifelong development of all learners, enhancing their physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being.4. Facilitates learning processes, which encourage critical thinking, thereby affecting the learners’personal wellness and the well-being of society.5. Nurtures individual self-reflection and consciousness, which preserves human rights and the development of supportive and sustainable environments.Physical education on a daily basis establishes the foundations for active living by providing experiences, which enhance the learner’s knowledge, attitudes, and skills towards a wellness lifestyle. Physical education as a medium for active living in a school setting engages the whole person in the following ways:Physically – through high-level participation in appropriately selected activities.Mentally – through concentration and intensity while learning new concepts and skills.Emotionally – through the confidence that comes from enjoying established skills.Socially – through associating with others.Spiritually – through satisfaction, contentment, and a sense of inner peace.NEXT WEEKS’ TOPIC: The nature and meaning of sports.n Send questions and queries to [email protected],comlast_img read more

Taylor joins Big Bash

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia (CMC): West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor has become the latest Caribbean player to sign up for Australia’s inaugural Women’s Big Bash League after Sydney Thunder announced Wednesday that it has secured her services for the tournament, which bowls off tomorrow. The 24-year-old Taylor ranks among the elite batsmen in international women’s cricket and also bowls penetrative off-spin and is expected to immediately strengthen a Thunder side that already boasts the likes of Alex Blackwell, Rachael Haynes, Rene Farrell, and Erin Osborne. Taylor, who took over the captaincy of the West Indies side in September, said she was looking forward to contributing in all areas to Thunder’s campaign. “I know I’m going to be a huge asset to the team. The team is very strong, I am here to share my experience and, hopefully, have some good games,” Taylor said.last_img read more

Reno dent H View’s semi-final aspirations

first_imgRenario Downswell netted his fourth goal in three games to earn Reno a valuable point against Harbour View in their battle against relegation in the Red Stripe Premier League.The result also had far- reaching effects for the Stars of the East as it severely dented their hopes of making the last four.The point put Reno (34) four clear of the relegation zone, with two games remaining. However, Harbour View (40) are now five points off the semi-final spot and, with only six points available, coach Ludlow Bernard has thrown in the towel.”It is highly improbable (qualify) and I am willing to concede,” he commented after the game.Humble Lion (44) remain in the hunt as their 1-0 win over Boys’ Town (38) kept them just a point adrift UWI FC (45), who are in pole position following their 1-0 win over Cavalier.Reno came into the Harbour View game hunting all three points, but, for Downswell, the point is welcome.”This match, we had to win as you can see that we are down in the relegation zone. But the team came out and played some good football and got a result,” the goalscorer said.The former St Elizabeth Technical High School player only returned to the team in recent weeks, due to reasons he chose not to disclose. However, his contribution is worth its weight in goals.”This is my third game and my fourth goal in three games. This is the back end of the season and we have to step up our performance. We’ve had a bit of ups and downs this season, but the coaching staff talked to us and got back the team together. But it’s a very young team and we believe we can do better,” he observed.”As a senior member of the team, when I look back, I see that I have to step up, so I just stepped forward and told the coach I am ready to lead the way,” he told The Gleaner.”We need to finish off this season and get ready for next season. It’s going to be hard, but we are going to push those two games and we are not going to ease back,” he said.last_img read more

It was the third straight year they were winning the Clarendon title. In fact, last year they took the double by winning the knockout title.In the previous week, Jamalco had defeated Kemps Hill FC 3-1 in the semi-final, while New Bowens created the upset of the competition when they defeated former Red Stripe Premier League campaigners Sporting Central Academy 1-0 in extra time.The final between Jamalco and New Bowens marked the third time the two were meeting for the season. They were in the same preliminary group and on two occasions, Jamalco won. However this time was different as at the end of regulation and extra-time the score was 0-0.It took the dreaded penalty shoot-out to decide the winner, thanks mainly to their goalkeeper, Sheldon “Budgie” Mills, who produced three brilliant saves to earn Jamalco victory.Starz Academy, Technical Strikers in Division One finalMany-time football champions of Manchester, Los Perfectos, lost in their bid to gain qualification to the Major League competition after they were beaten 2-1 by Technical Strikers in the semi-finals of the Jamalco-sponsored Division One competition.

Sports Briefs

first_imgAussie players want to limit day-night Tests SYDNEY (AP): Cricket Australia’s plan to stage two day-night Tests next season hit another hitch yesterday when the players’ association sought a limit of one. The initial schedule proposed that the third Test between Australia and South Africa in November at Adelaide – the venue for the only previous pink-ball Test – and the series-opener against Pakistan in Brisbane in December be day-night matches. South African players and officials have so far resisted the idea, although Pakistan have committed to playing a day-night match. “The feedback we are receiving from our playing group is that there still remain concerns over day-night Tests,” Australian Cricketers’ Association chief executive Alistair Nicholson said. “While there is acknowledgement that this format may grow the game, at this stage, the players would prefer to only play one day-night Test in 2016-17.” Williamson confirmed as NZ Test captain WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP): Leading batsman Kane Williamson has been confirmed as New Zealand’s 29th Test cricket captain. The 25-year-old Williamson has already captained New Zealand in 34 one-day or Twenty20 Internationals and will now succeed Brendon McCullum as captain in all three formats. New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said Williamson “has been a leader within the team for a long time and has already shown himself to be an extremely capable captain. He is respected by his peers and the wider cricket community for his professional approach both on and off the field and has a superb cricket brain.” Williamson said he had learnt a lot from McCullum and “the culture that he and Mike (Hesson) have cultivated has been a huge part of this team’s success in recent times”. Ronaldo, Benzema to miss match MADRID (AP): Real Madrid forwards Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema will miss today’s league match as they try to recover from injuries in time to face Manchester City in the return leg of their Champions League semi-final. Coach Zinedine Zidane said that neither of his top two scorers was fit for the trip to Real Sociedad, where Madrid need a win to realistically remain in the Spanish league title race. Madrid trail leaders Barcelona and second-place AtlÈtico Madrid by one point, with three matches to go. Madrid host City on Wednesday after the two sides drew 0-0 in the first leg, where Madrid clearly missed Ronaldo’s spark in attack and where Benzema played only the first half. “I am worried because each time you have a player injured it is difficult,” Zidane said yesterday. “Now, the most important thing is that they completely recover because we cannot take risks with Cristiano and Karim.”last_img read more

Munro battle to secure draw in ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU: Munro College warmed up for Saturday’s ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup derby football match against rivals and defending champions, St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS), with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Maggotty High at Appleton Sports Complex yesterday. The match, which had its kick-off last Thursday, was abandoned because of rain and persistent lightning strikes with 30 minutes played and Maggotty holding a 1-0 lead after Sandrae Facey scored in the 30th minute. Yesterday’s match was a shortened version for some supporters who turned up to watch the continuation. When play resumed, it appeared that Maggotty were ready to log their first win of the season. They were dominant in the remaining 15 minutes of the first half, with Facey in particular proving a danger once more to the Munro defence. But Munro persisted and could have easily won the game had they been a lot more clinical in the final third. In fact, were it not for a defender’s mistake – in chopping down Munro skipper Timar Lewis inside the box, as the forward bore down on goal – they could have been celebrating only their first three points of the season. Lewis got up to side-foot a penalty to the left of Delano Lewis in goal for Maggotty in the 78th minute, robbing the hosts of the chance of victory. “I think poor decision making around the back and in attack made us look real ordinary at times today,” said Lance Morgan, Munro’s coach. “All we needed was just to be more composed in attack, but overall I think we managed well, although we should have won the game.” He said the game was a hard one and that it sets them up well for the derby preparations against STETHS. “We will take this and go into preparations for Saturday’s big game. We need to win that one, so we are going put in some work for it,” Morgan told The Gleaner. Munro moved to six points from four matches, while Maggotty remain without a victory, but now have two points from their four matches. Yesterday’s Results Maggotty 1 Munro 1 Knockalva 1 Green Island 8 Newell 4 Black River 0 Belair 2 Decarteret 0 BB Coke 0 Manchester 2 York Castle 1 Marcus Garvey 1 Ocho Rios 0 Browns Town 2 Foga Road 2 Winston Jones 0last_img read more

Lothian expects Takashima to use credentials for good

first_imgTable Tennis Jamaica President Godfrey Lothian wants to make Jamaica into what he describes as a “table tennis nation”, and he expects highly regarded Japanese coach Satoshi Takashima to help make this dream possible. Lothian told The Gleaner that Takashima, who will take charge of the national programme for the next two years, has a proven international track record. “He comes with a lot of credentials. He worked in Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, and he played for Japan. So since he comes here with so many credentials, I am expecting him to use them and take Jamaica Table Tennis to the next level,” Lothian said. “We want to develop a pool of players as one of the problems we had when we were doing well is that we didn’t have any young players coming through when the older ones left the scene. So we want to have five to ten thousand youngsters across the country playing table tennis within the next five years, with proper coaching, in proper institutions, having the proper facilities, that is our goal,” he continued. Lothian said that the association would identify the nation’s best coach, and together with Takashima, they will organise and train the best talents. The administrator notes that he hopes Takashima will leave a lasting legacy at the end of his stint. “Our best (local) coaches will be identified to work with Mr Takashima,” Lothian said. “They will pull the best players across the country into the national programme and over a period of two years make the best out of them so they can compete in the Caribbean and on the world stage. We are in Division Three. We want to move from Division Three to Two in short order so people will come to Jamaica to say that this is a table tennis nation,” he added.last_img read more

Gary Glitter will shine in Shaw Trophy

first_imgBang in form GARY GLITTER is tipped to complete a hat-trick of wins in today’s open allowance feature over the straight for the Hon. Audley Shaw Trophy to be contested by nine starters at Caymanas Park. Trained by Dalton Sirjue for owner Gordon Lewis, the four-year-old bay gelding by Deputy Glitters out of True Virtue looked awesome when scoring back to back fast-time wins in overnight company this season and although stepping up in class with topweight of 57.0kg, seems heading for the top level in present frame of mind. He simply destroyed the opposition over 1200 metres on February 8, strolling home by 6 3/4 lengths from SIR BUDGET in the smart time of 1:11.1. And before that on January 14, he won easily over the round five course in a fast 58.3. Although stiff competition is expected from proven campaigner CRUCIAL APPEAL (a former grade one winner) and the consistent SIR BUDGET, GARY GLITTER has come on to such an extent in recent months that he looks the type to follow with winning rider Rayan Wilson again in the saddle. “I’m very pleased with his progress,” said Sirjue “Based on his two wins this season he seems to be going places and although facing his stiffest test to date, I fancy his chances. “This is a horse who acts well over the straight and although the speed of SIR BUDGET, CRUCIAL APPEAL and POLLY B will test his mettle, his mid-race pace could prove a decisive factor in the outcome,” added the trainer. For me, the choice has to be GARY GLITTER, with the MIchael Beecham-trained SIR BUDGET his chief threat. On a day when the remaining races will offer trophies in honour of Caymanas Track Limited chairman Danville Walker, managing director Shane Dalling and other board members, I also like NINELIFECAT to win the Shane Dalling Trophy over the straight ahead of CRAFTY STAR; recent winner FRANCIA’S PRIDE to repeat in the third for the Keith Blake Trophy, GOODOL’UNCLELINK in the second for the Ed Barnes Trophy and LAWS OF THE CODE in the Hon.

Butler’s late points lift Timberwolves past Pelicans

first_imgDeMarcus Cousins had 35 points and nine rebounds, and the Pelicans tied it at 96 when Cousins bounced a pass to Anthony Davis cutting down the lane for a two-handed dunk.Davis had 24 points and 10 rebounds, and Holiday added 14 points for New Orleans, which has lost two straight.“We’re still a team figuring each other out and figuring out what’s best for us and what’s the best spots to put guys in,” Cousins said. “But I’m extremely confident in this team.”New Orleans trailed 92-80 before Cousins and Tony Allen each scored six points during a 14-4 run to tie it with 2:22 to go.That comeback bid was “definitely a sign that shows me this is a team that doesn’t stop fighting. That’s a plus for any team,” Cousins said. “We just need to fix a lot of minor things.”ADVERTISEMENT Butler can worry about that later. His go-ahead shot as he was fouled with 34 seconds left highlighted a 23-point performance and lifted the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 104-98 victory over New Orleans on Wednesday (Thursday Manila time).Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points and stole the ball from Jrue Holiday with 24 seconds left to help seal the victory for Minnesota, which lost a 12-point lead in the fourth quarter before winning its third straight. Perhaps the most hopeful sign for Minnesota, which is trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2004, is that the Wolves won despite 22 turnovers and the fact that Karl-Anthony Towns, limited by foul trouble, scored only two points.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“It’s a different feeling.

He didn’t score his first points until his put-back dunk with less than five minutes left. The third-year pro out of Kentucky has never been shut out. … Jamal Crawford, who had 11 points, closed out the first quarter by banking in a 39-foot shot from the mid-court circle. … The Timberwolves led for most of the first half, shooting 60.5 percent (26 of 43) and going up by as many as 12 points when Butler’s dunk made it 60-48.Pelicans: Allen had a season-high 10 points in 19 minutes off the bench. … The Pelicans fell to 1-3 at home after the second loss of a three-game home stand. … Cousins, who entered the game with 36 turnovers, had six in the first half and finished with eight of New Orleans’ 19 total turnovers.OFF TARGETCousins tied a career high with five 3-pointers, but missed his last three.
