Health & Physical Education
Health and physical education are an integral part of an Ursuline education. To educate the whole person is an essential value which is strongly supported through a variety of lifetime and team sports. Activities such as archery, golf, field hockey, pickleball and badminton are explored during the freshman and sophomore years. In addition to these, students are engaged in fitness, team building, and cooperative activities throughout all of their physical education courses.
The primary focus of the health education curriculum is to cover such topics as wellness, diseases and risk behavior prevention and to learn the critical lifesaving skills of CPR, AED and First Aid. It is the goal of the department that each student gain extensive knowledge and an appreciation for her own well-being and health for a lifetime.
