The Physical Education curriculum is specifically designed to meet the educational needs of students. It aims to prepare students for the changing demands of life in the 21st century and to prepare them for their own physical development. Students engage in the study of culture and its sporting traditions, analyzing gender issues, and determining different views about physical activity. Our students learn about team and individual excellence in practical sessions that include Basketball, Volleyball, Throwball, Table Tennis, Athletics, Yoga, Football, and Cricket. They are encouraged to participate as individuals and in groups to appreciate the benefits of peer support, team roles, and responsibilities, as well as perseverance and commitment.
Sport and Physical Education aims to educate the individual holistically and prepares students for a physically, emotionally, and socially healthy life. Students are prepared to be able to make informed decisions about their own health and physical wellbeing. They learn to identify potential hazards and to cope with them in a methodical and informed manner.
A wide range of extracurricular activities also encourages the development of team skills including cooperation, communication, and tolerance. Students can participate in team sports with opportunities for after-school and inter-school competitions. Our sporting facilities include an outdoor basketball court, volleyball court, throwball court, and football field. An indoor gymnasium caters to table tennis and yoga. For activities such as athletics, cricket, and swimming that are not available on campus, we hire those facilities at clubs in the vicinity, thus providing our students with access and opportunity to the entire gamut of sporting activities.
The goal of Physical Education in the school curriculum is to lead the child to the path of understanding the value of physical health & an active lifestyle and its direct correlation to wellbeing, both emotionally and mentally.
Some of the important learner milestones of Physical Education in the curriculum are to:
Become aware of movement as a creative medium to communicate, express, and appreciate emotions
