LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in English; abstract also in Chinese.
The primary objectives of this project are twofold: First, to enrich the learning experiences of the Hong Kong school children in health and physical education through a comprehensive rope-jumping programme. Second, to promote and maintain cardiovascular health among the Hong Kong school children through the active participation in rope-jumping activities. The target population for this project will be student of ten primary schools (P.4-P.6) and ten junior secondary schools (S.1 - S.3) in the territories. About 2,500 male and female students aged 9-14 will be included. The project will be implemented between September 1999 and March 2001. Under this project, an educational package including video series and handbooks on nutrition, exercise, and fitness will be developed in assisting school physical educators to promote a healthy lifestyle to their students. By inserting this proposed project into the present physical education curriculum, physical educators will find necessary philosophy, strategies, and pedagogical models to incorporate health and fitness education into a well-balanced school physical education curriculum. All in all, it is most important to develop a comprehensive and quality physical education programme which integrates appropriate physical activities, concepts, and value leading to healthy lives throughout a child's experiences in the home, school and community.
