We have a fully qualified and experienced Physical Education teacher who creates safe and exciting skills based lessons that will build the fundamental skills to be able to participate in a variety of team sports such as soccer, rugby, cricket, basketball and badminton. With our fully equipped campus, we are able to offer a variety of learning spaces such as our gymnasium, football pitch, center courtyard and in 2019-2020 our swimming pool. Not only does PSPE focus on skills and physical movement, but it also focuses on teamwork, collaboration and cooperation and the importance of good sportsmanship.
The Physical Social Personal Education Learning Outcomes are divided into three main categories:
An understanding of our own beliefs, values, attitudes, experiences and feelings and how they shape us; the impact of cultural influences; the recognition of strengths, limitations and challenges as well as the ability to cope successfully with situations of change and adversity; how the learner’s concept of self and feelings of self-worth affect his or her approach to learning and how he or she interacts with others.
An understanding of the factors that contribute to developing and maintaining a balanced, healthy lifestyle; the importance of regular physical activity; the body’s response to exercise; the importance of developing basic motor skills; understanding and developing the body’s potential for movement and expression; the importance of nutrition; understanding the causes and possible prevention of ill health; the promotion of safety; rights and the responsibilities we have to ourselves and others to promote well-being; making informed choices and evaluating consequences, and taking action for healthy living now and in the future.
