Physical Education

Our bodies are a gift from God. By respecting them and making healthy choices, we give Him thanks and praise.

The Physical Education Program focuses on students’ improved physical fitness. Classes include exercises designed to increase flexibility, muscle strength, endurance, and cardio-respiratory fitness at every grade level. The program continues to play “game-type” activities in order to provide opportunities for the children to experience maximum participation, healthy competition and good sportsmanship.
Games played during classes basketballs, soccer, handball, dance, freeze tag, volleyball, capture the flag, and team building activities.

Physical fitness as lifelong goal is promoted in the program. Lifetime activities are those which a person is able to do, after formal education, in order to stay physically healthy.
