The Department of Physical Education was established in the year 2014 with higher secondary Section for XI and XII Standard. Before that the college had proposed a subject of Physical Education along with the syllabus to the Meghalaya Board of School Education (MBOSE) Tura in the year 2013 for taking initiative to be included as one of the papers in the Higher Secondary level. Then the Board had accepted the proposal of the college and approved the subject of Physical Education as one of the optional papers at the Higher Secondary level. Therefore, Shillong College, Shillong, is the first college in the state of Meghalaya that had proposed and introduced the subject of Physical Education as one of the papers at the Higher Secondary level in the Arts stream. Soon after the approval of the Board, the college was granted permission to offer the paper as an optional subject to the students from the year 2014 onwards. In the same way, the Department of Physical Education realised the importance of Physical Education in the region as there is no such course that is being offered by the only university, the North Eastern Hills University, for the benefit of students who have serious interest and potential in various games and sports. Therefore, the college took the initiative and sent a proposal to the North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) for introduction of a three-year degree course (Six Semesters), the Bachelor of Physical Education (B.P.E). The Department has designed and structured different games and sports activities in the college such as intramural competitions to enhance knowledge and understanding of movement, health, sport, physical activities, and for providing them good quality education. The programmes in our department enable students to develop and improve generic life skills: thinking, questioning, reflecting, evaluating, team work and communicating. These are the skills desired and sought for by employers of today’s and tomorrow’s graduates. The objective of the Department is to make sports and physical activities an important part of the daily routine of students for them to be able to make it a way of life that generates fitness awareness. The programmes of Physical Education provide opportunities to students to participate in various competitions inside the campus such as intramural competitions and also at the national/ state/district and inter-university tournaments as extramural competitions and thus develop personality. The department is also looking after the funtioning of the gymnasium in close coordination with the Sports Development Cell.
