Physical Education Department


The physical education (PE) program at CKM strives to develop each student’s potential in physical growth, neuromuscular development, emotional control, and social awareness. PE provides opportunities for students to acquire skills and develop interests in a wide variety of recreational activities. Students are given a sense of achievement and enjoyment through participation. Each student becomes a more highly skilled, physically fit, and well-rounded person.
