This space is staffed by a certified fitness trainer and is fully equipped with a vast variety of cardio equipment, including treadmills, bikes, rowing machines, elliptical cross-trainers as well as weights and strength training equipment.
ESBCHS Physical Education Program
Every student must complete Physical Education 10 (minimum 3 credit) in order to graduate. All students should lead a healthy and active lifestyle, and a great way to start is through a physical education class. Daily active living is the theme of the entire Physical Education program, and is explored through four main outcomes: movement activities, health benefits, interacting positively with others and personal responsibility.
Physical Education 10
Phys Ed 10 is one of the requirements for a high school diploma. Phys Ed 10 provides you with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. PE 10 can be taken as a 3-credit or a 5-credit course and is offered as male or female classes.
Physical Education 20
Phys. Ed. 20 emphasizes dual and individual activities that can be pursued throughout adult life. Course can offer activities such as bowling, billiards, Velodrome, tennis, curling and golf as well as traditional team games and activities. Some off-campus activities will require students to arrive early at school, give up their lunch hour or arrive back at school after regular bell times. Course fee required. PE 20 courses are offered in separate male/female classes but may be co-ed if numbers are too low to offer separate sections.
Physical Education 30
Lifetime activities continue to be emphasized in Phys. Ed. 30. Much of the course is spent off-campus exploring individual and dual recreational activities. Some off-campus activities will require students to arrive early at school, give up their lunch hour or arrive back at school after regular bell times. PE 30 courses are offered in separate male/female classes but may be co-ed if numbers are too low to offer separate sections.
Career & Life Management (CALM)
The Career and Life Management course consists of three main units: Careers and the World of Work, Independent Living, and Well-Being (including sexuality that parents may choose to have their child opt out). This course is also offered in French. Students may also have the opportunity to complete up to two extra credits in Workplace Safety Systems (HCS3000) and Workplace Safety Practices (HCS3010). Every student must complete CALM in order to qualify for a high school diploma. At ESBCHS, CALM is offered to our grade 10 students.
