Secondary School Curriculum. Part II. Art and Science: Physical Training


by Elizabeth Burchenal & Edgar Fauver 1906

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS Physical Education has become recognized as an essential factor in education. The general effects of a systematic course of physical exercises wisely directed have warranted its introduction as a required part of the school curriculum.

It is then that nascent powers are manifesting themselves and characteristics of thought and action, of posture and bodily form are crystallizing into habits, posture, and form which will typify the man and woman of later years. The first aim of the course in Physical Training, therefore, is to foster a condition of vigorous health and to so increase and regulate the organic powers that the best physical condition for growth both mental and physical may result.
