Physical education provides a broad platform for the optimal development of fundamental motor skills which is the foundation of all sports activities. At the school level, along with the development of motor skills, coordination, speed and fitness, Physical education also facilitates the formation of the qualities of sportsmanship, self-efficacy, emotional intelligence and facilitates healthy and active living.
