Physical Education

Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.

John F. Kennedy


At the heart of the PE curriculum is a philosophy of inclusion, enjoyment, high quality teaching and learning and holistic development of all students. The department focuses on healthy active lifestyles, development of physical literacy, the development of critical thinking skills and mental toughness. Inclusion and development of humanistic values remain at the heart of extra-curricular school sport, with more of a focus leaning towards development of the competitive mind set, resilience and mastery of skills and aspirations to be elite performers.
