What we do
The department is responsible for designing and developing the curriculum for secondary school education.
Promoting the healthy development of all students, as well as enabling them to reach their full potential, is a priority for educators across Sri Lanka. Students’ health and well-being contribute to their ability to learn in all disciplines, including Health and Physical Education, and that learning, in turn, contributes to their overall achievement levels. Well-organised educational experiences prioritize social-emotional learning, and physical and mental health, which lead to academic success. The Health and Physical Education curriculum engages students in learning the factors that contribute to health and well-being and develops skills required to live healthy, active lives.
The Health and Physical Education curriculum is based on the vision that the knowledge and skills students acquire in the programme will benefit them throughout their lives to enable them to thrive in an ever-changing world by developing their mental health and well-being, physical and health literacy, and the capacity and commitment they will require to lead a healthy and active life.
The expectations of Health and Physical Education are streamlined into four distinct but related categories namely socio-emotional learning skills, active living, movement competence, Healthy Living which would lead toward building a healthy nation.

Helps cultivate in a child a deep appreciation for the beauty that surrounds them. It helps build a sense of proportion, harmony and beauty with the surroundings as well as higher-order emotions. Plato regarded education as an indispensable part of education in a free man. education is expressed in terms of visual representations, movements, sounds, verbal expression, etc assists in the development of the child’s sensitivity and the child’s personality development. Modern pedagogy empirically proves that each child should have the opportunity to develop their ability to observe, experience, evaluate and create that which is beautiful. This can only be achieved if we offer children a healthy living environment and an active artistic education. It is towards this goal that we strive to teach our future citizens to appreciate and contribute to the rich diversity of nature, culture and heritage of this country.
