Participating and contributing

This competency is about being actively involved in communities. Communities include family, whānau, and school and those based, for example, on a common interest or culture. They may be drawn together for purposes such as learning, work, celebration, or recreation. They may be local, national, or global. This competency includes a capacity to contribute appropriately as a group member, to make connections with others, and to create opportunities for others in the group.

Students who participate and contribute in communities have a sense of belonging and the confidence to participate within new contexts. They understand the importance of balancing rights, roles, and responsibilities and of contributing to the quality and sustainability of social, cultural, physical, and economic environments.

In this course I will be taking students in various physical activities and sports in order to increase their fitness and physical activity, I will make these classes fun and make sure students have a say in what sports they do and don’t want to be involved in. My goal for this class is to increase their fitness and change their attitude towards physical activity to a positive view so that they have been encouraged to take a sense of responsibility and participate in physical activities or sports not only at school but outside of school as well.
