Health & Physical Education

“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 develop skills to manage their emotions and examine how the nature of their relationships change over time.  Emphasis is placed on treating others the way they would want to be treated in a variety of situations and scenarios. Students further develop their understanding of movement as they learn to monitor how their body responds to different types of physical activity. They continue to be involved in team games, with a greater emphasis on applying rules fairly and behaving ethically when participating in different physical activities. This subject aims to develop students’ knowledge of how we can show God’s character traits of graciousness, team unity, encouragement, and take care of the bodies God has given us and to understand the importance and benefits of physical fitness and learn ways to improve and maintain fitness.

“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
