Sports in Primary
Physical Education and Sport in upper Primary (P4-P6)
Our goal in the Physical Education Department is for every student to learn to make healthy choices and feel successful when participating in a variety of activities. This enables students to develop a positive attitude toward physical activity and to develop healthy habits, which will hopefully continue throughout their lives.
We want students to have fun and enjoy PE. They will be encouraged to participate to the best of their ability in a wide variety of activities. At the upper primary level, certain skills are taught so that students will be able to pursue competitive sports at a variety of standards, throughout their lives. We place focus on teaching the necessary motor skills for them to master in a variety of sports.
We believe that Physical Education not only teaches the psycho-motor domain but the cognitive and affective domains as well.
Our goal is to have every student experience success. We do not stress competition. Instead we stress that if you do your best then you are a winner. For us, good sportsmanship and teamwork are very important, not only in the Physical Education class, but in real life situations.
Research has shown that physical literacy has been identified as a key ingredient in raising healthy, happy, and successful children. We aim in our Physical Education classes to provide the foundation for students to enjoy physical activity and sports, but it also has far-reaching implications for their brain development, scholastic performance, and well-being in general.
We teach the basic introductory skills for the following activities:
- Relay Games
- Fitness Activities, Athletics
- Throwing and Catching(all varieties)
- Organized Games and Activities – Volleyball, Football, Basketball etc.
- Cooperative Games
- Recreational Activities
