LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in English; abstract also in Chinese.
Physical education is a subject through physical activities to teach the young people recognize their significance as important features of our culture, and develop a richer appreciation of culture and contribution. The deliberation and articulation about the role of purposeful physical activities in enhancing the quality of life, in order to illuminate peoples' understanding of what to do with their lives and how they choose to spend their spare time. Such understanding requires the engagement in purposeful physical activities so that person is able to make an informed choice. Physical education can make students know more about the other people and the society, so that their social knowledge and moral value would be enhanced. Aesthetic value is educated through physical education and students will learn how to appreciate aesthetic movements. Physical education can help students to develop a healthy life-style and promote the qualities of desirable moral behaviours, co-operation in communal life. Thus, the education of young people would be incomplete, if physical education is neglected and not recognized for the unique contribution.
