“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 investigate different aspects of sports including the use of space, teamwork and strategies in both team sports and individual games. Students examine their unique God-given gifts and talents and recognise the role each can play as well as develop knowledge of how they can show God’s character traits of graciousness, team unity, encouragement, and take care of the bodies God has given us. Students consider and learn about different health and nutrition components and can identify the connections between themselves and the effect health has on the human body. Students will continue to build on and refine their fine and gross motor skills that are sport specific while participating in a range of sports.
“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
