To provide a comprehensive 4-year long Physical Education Programme to develop the physical, intellectual, social and emotional aspects of all our students through physical activities. 


Department Goals

We aim to: 

·         Promote a healthy living and active lifestyle ‘Do it the Fun Way’ 

·         Teach physical and safety skills 

·         Develop Self Confidence & Promote Creativity 

·         Develop Leadership Skills 

·         Encourage Teamwork and Sportsmanship 

·         Develop a love of Fitness as a Sport 


The department plans to provide a variety of pupil-centred instructional activities that equip individuals with the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to enjoy and sustain a physically active and healthy lifestyle. This serves to complement other education areas in promoting educational outcomes that are less likely to be achieved in other subject areas.
