“The world would have us believe that winning or success is measured by points on a scoreboard or by dollar signs. The Christian realises that winning or success is determined by whether or not a goal has been achieved, and that goal is to bring glory to God.” Thomas M. Boqdon
Students learn a range of fundamental motor skills and movement skills through a wide range of activities. These skills provide the platform for learning sports specific skills throughout their schooling. Students learn that our bodies are a wonderful gift from God and that there are many ways in which we can strengthen, protect and preserve this gift through participating in activities that promote physical fitness and wellbeing. They also examine messages related to health decisions and describe how to help keep themselves and others healthy and safe. This subject aims to develop and use students’ personal, behavioural, social and cognitive skills and strategies to promote a sense of personal identity and wellbeing and to build and manage respectful relationships as well as to improve social confidence and competence in small and large group activities.
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore, I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.” 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
