"I've missed 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed" (Michael Jordan)
PE stands for Physical Education and is an important and valued part of our school curriculum. PE helps our children develop their physical fitness. As part of this they learn that it is highly important to include exercise and physical activity as part of their lifestyle. Likewise, they also learn how to stretch their physical capacities, enhance their stamina as well as strengthen their muscles.
PE also helps our children develop teamwork and sportsmanship. Children are encouraged to display our 5 Core Values through their participation in sport.
