Olympic/ism education : does it have a place in physical education ? / Kirsten Petrie

Petrie, Kirsten

Founder of the modern Olympic Movement Pierre de Coubertin espoused the educational value of sport and the centrality of pedagogy in “building a peaceful and better world”. How this is translated into educational programmes and practices has been interpreted differently, with some variation between Olympic education and Olympism education. Understanding the points of difference is an important part of considering how Olympism as a philosophy can inform educational endeavours, and as Culpan and McBain (2012) argue, influence the role Olympism can play in helping to legitimise physical education (PE) in schools. Drawing on the context of Aotearoa New Zealand, the paper explores how Olympism education has been used to frame curriculum policy in PE and to what extend this has and has not impacted on practice.
