Small Group Physical Education Program (PPL1O1)
(by Principal Recommendation and Invitation Only)​


This grade 9 physical education course pilot program has been renewed for the summer of 2018.  It is aimed at students who may experience a high level of anxiety in regularly scheduled grade 9 physical education classes.  This course is intended to help students in the transition to high school.  

Students who are approved for registration will need to select an additional course in grade 9.   Registration is restricted to in-risk grade 8 students recommended by the elementary school in consultation with the parents of the student. 

Classes will be co-ed and limited to 30 students per class.  Participating students and parents will be asked to complete pre and post learning surveys to help determine the impact of the program.  This program is offered at DA Wilson SS in Whitby ONLY.  Bussing is not provided for this program. 

Successful candidates of this program will earn a credit in Physical Education (PPL1O1).
