HPE Activity Passing Ball

Health and Physical Education

The inclusion of Health and Physical Education in the school curriculum was formally endorsed during the 7th CAPSD Board Meeting in 1997. A series of pilot tests were conducted in primary schools from 1998 to 1999. Since the pilot tests were very successful, HPE was introduced as a formal teaching subject in all the primary schools from the year 2000.

In 2007, a set of revised curriculum books, comprising of curriculum framework and eight activity books, were developed for use from 2009 academic session.

For latest list of prescribed curriculum resources (textbooks, teacher guides, workbooks, references, readers, charts), refer prescribed books from Downloads section.

Dr. Dawa Gyaltshen looks after the curriculum.
