PENZ Meeting 15/5/19
This year I am participating in the Primary PENZ (Physical Education New Zealand) professional development. I feel that as a school, we do not have a good PE programme - to clarify, we have a very good sport programme, but PE and sport are not the same thing. PE is about skill development, movement and body awareness whereas sport is playing a game of rugby, netball etc.
This is something we can improve on.
At our PENZ meetings, which happen twice a term, we discuss issues faced by our schools and how they can be addressed. We learn new games/activities, and how to adapt these for inclusion, different aged children, lack of resources/space etc.
