Physical Education

Villa Duchesne provides quality physical education to all students. Each student participates in a variety of activities and receives instruction designed to promote a healthy lifestyle in grades seven through twelve and into the future. The program provides aerobic exercises designed to improve students' cardiovascular fitness, exercises that improve strength and flexibility, and sports, games, dance, and aquatics activities that teach coordination and motor skills. All students at Villa Duchesne must complete courses in first aid, personal protection, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation as well as automated external defibrillator training.

"In geology, we did a lab in subduction. (That’s when tectonic plates meet with one sliding under the other!) We had two graham crackers and we put vanilla icing on one and chocolate icing on the other. Then we put a whole bunch of candy on the vanilla one and had to scrape it along the chocolate one to show the different levels of the seaboard."
