Physical Education

General Physical Education (G7 – G12)

Physical Education (PE) is a unique subject that provides comprehensive learning opportunities for students to improve both their physical and psychological capabilities through different physical activities. We provide a safe and active environment for children to become active, creative, collaborative, sociable and competitive, and to face different challenges as individuals and in groups or teams.

  • Students will improve their physical fitness and sports skills, and enhance the overall health conditions.
  • Students will establish desirable social attitudes and patterns of behaviour such as fair play and good sportsmanship.
  • Students will understand the essentials of co-operating with others in communal life and foster their sense of responsibility and belonging.
  • Students will cultivate their sense of aesthetic appreciation and enrich their knowledge of elegant posture and movements.
  • Students will develop interest and desirable attitudes towards physical activities and will be encouraged to take part in sports, physical training and recreational activities actively and regularly.
