Physical Education

The Junior School PE curriculum offers a range of sports including gymnastics, basketball, swimming and outdoor-based activities such as football and athletics. 

Students learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, ideas, and to improve their quality and effectiveness. Through this process, students discover their aptitudes, abilities and preferences, and make choices about how to get involved in lifelong physical activity.

The emphasis is placed on the ABCs (Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed) as children progress through the Lower Junior and Upper Junior School. We believe that every student has the ability to achieve and can find an activity which they enjoy. The department is fully focused on making sure that all students enjoy sport and value the importance of living a healthy, active lifestyle.

Competitions

While the focus is on the fun and enjoyment of playing sport, there are regular opportunities to compete in inter-house competitions, sports days, and swimming galas.
