Posted November 14, 2018 07:09:49A new standard of physical education for students in Israeli schools has been introduced, a step that will also provide a way to prevent children from falling into a cycle of physical and cognitive impairments that has plagued them since they started kindergarten.
In a major move, the Israeli education ministry announced Monday that students will be given the ability to take physical education classes in their kindergarten classes and will be able to take one additional physical education class during their first six years in the country.
In addition, they will be required to take the physical education course in Hebrew.
“Our goal is to introduce a new standard in the physical-education curriculum that will provide a new way for children to experience the physical environment and learn how to become active and productive,” said education minister Naftali Bennett, who is also the head of the Education Ministry.
“In addition to physical education, we want to create a culture that is more physically and intellectually stimulating.
This is a very important aspect of this new curriculum.”
In addition the ministry will establish physical education clubs in every kindergarten and will also create new physical education programs for all students.
The first one will be launched in March 2018 and the second one will launch in September 2018.
The ministry said it will also launch a physical education project in the public schools in the future.
“We will be starting new physical activities in the school every year,” said Bennett.
“It will be a new program that is not just physical, but also cultural, and a program that will be based on physical activity and exercise.
We have already started this, but we are still working out the details.”
The new physical-exercise curriculum will be made available to all Israeli children starting at the age of six.
It will include activities like running, jogging, swimming, cycling, and cross-country skiing.
It is intended to help children develop physical endurance and endurance, strengthen their coordination, and increase their self-esteem, according to the ministry.
The new physical activity will be accompanied by a new curriculum for children and teens in the kindergarten classes.
The ministry will also work to establish physical-and-psychological clubs in all public schools.
“A physical activity is a key component in physical and mental health.
We want to improve the physical, emotional and mental well-being of our children and adolescents,” said a ministry official.
“We are very proud of this initiative, and it will not only improve the quality of our students’ physical education but also increase the physical activity levels of our young people.”
The ministry also announced that it will set up a team to work with the families of the children enrolled in the new physical exercise program.
“As a first step, the team will work with parents to set up physical exercise clubs,” said the official.
The new standard will be offered to all elementary school students as well as to children of elementary school age.
However, only students in the elementary school will be allowed to participate in the program.
The physical-activity program will be extended to high schools, elementary schools, and special schools.
The official added that the ministry was also planning to create physical-skills programs for children between the ages of six and 12.
