Our Purpose and Goal for 2021/22

Our purpose is to support teachers in their professional growth and development so that we can enrich the field of physical and health education for teachers and students in British Columbia. We advocate for and facilitate continuous growth in our field by bringing together professional learning experiences and resources to empower teachers to enhance their practice and the quality of learning experiences in their PHE programs.

We used Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle to explore our big WHY (i.e., why do we exist as a group) and from there we continued on to develop our purpose statement. 

This statement encompasses our values, beliefs, and actions as a specialist group, and it guides our collective efforts.
