Middle School Physical Education

Research shows that physical education boosts students’ overall health and mental development. At the Middle School level, physical education classes introduce new skills while refining basic movements developed during the elementary school years.

The physical education program offers all students a variety of activities in competitive and non-competitive settings, along with individual and team sports.

Students play soccer, field hockey, rugby, volleyball, basketball, badminton, gymnastics (tumbling), wrestling, track and field, and games. They will also complete three cross-country runs per term and be introduced to a fitness circuit in the gym and regular weight room training.

Students learn the specific skills required to play these sports, while acquiring important life skills along the way. These life skills, such as social responsibility, cooperation, commitment, discipline, leadership, and listening are all developed and refined through daily physical activity.
