Physical education at Durham Intermediate School is planned to encourage:

  • confidence in movement
  • an appreciation for the importance of physical fitness
  • an ability to work well both independently and on a team 

After completing several years of physical education at DIS, our students have participated in a variety of activities that will help them increase movement coordination, improve health, and develop social skills.
