  • It is a statutory requirement that pupils are provided with quality physical activities and learning;
  • It is important for pupils' health and growth;
  • It is crucial in forming future lifestyle habits and promoting good health;
  • It is lots of fun and children really enjoy it!

  • Educational Gymnastics;

  • Athletics;
  • Dance.
