Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2008-10-15


Prior to September 2008, all Manitoba grade 9 and 10 students were required to take Physical Education (PE) classes in order to graduate high school, representing 50% health and 50% physical education. Students could also take optional PE credits beyond the two required courses. However, as of September 2008, students starting high school are required to take PE throughout all four years of High School. This new policy is based on recommendations from The Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures Task Force Report.
