Health and Physical Education

The main aim of these subjects is to develop in children a love and enthusiasm for physical activity and to maintain and build in our children an enthusiasm for an active lifestyle. Students will learn about fitness, dance, gymnastics, games skills and aquatics. This is complemented by a daily physical activity programme which occurs across the whole school. Our well equiped hall enables students to access a variety of sports and activities all year round.

Learning in Health and Physical Education also promotes students' self confidence and interpersonal skills. While children are encouraged to fully develop their skills during their sports lessons, they are also encouraged to place more importance on the enjoyment they derive from sport rather than on winning whatever game they are playing.

Children have the opportunity to participate in SAPSASA and SACPSSA – the State and Catholic Sports Associations for Primary Schools.
