Sports Programme

At One World International School, we provide a well-designed sports programme that is coordinated with our academic programme to support all aspects of child development.

Students learn the fundamentals of individual and team sports. Participating in team sports in school improves children's social, communication and athletic skills while helping them make meaningful physical activity a lifelong habit. Our physical education programme includes specialist-led classes that encourage healthy competition and promote physical, social and emotional development and teamwork.

Students can also get involved in sports at OWIS through our co-curricular activities programme. Whether they're beginners or highly experienced, students can participate in after-school sports activities that introduce them to new skills and allow them to connect with teachers and peers. We hope to provide opportunities for our students to compete with other schools, too.

Athletic Activities

From early childhood through secondary school, our sports curriculum consists of age-appropriate activities that build on students' existing skill sets and help them form new ones. Here's an overview of what we offer in our physical education programme and our after-school sports activities.

House Sports Activities

Student led team sports within the House system are directed by House Captains who are responsible for organising teams and ensuring fair play.

Students have the opportunity to use their skills on behalf of a team and take pride in what they've learned and accomplished. Sports provide an excellent way for students to enjoy a sense of community with other House members. Participation is easy because there's no need to sign up. House Captains select the teams ahead of time.

Benefits of Team Sports

Team sports help to lay the foundation to prepare our children to be tomorrow's dynamic leaders.

Early Childhood

At this age, health and fitness in school are intended to challenge students' locomotor abilities. We provide a safe, comfortable environment for young children to learn to use and control their bodies through coordination and balance, take risks and challenge their abilities. Engaging lessons get our students excited about sports and exercise.

Primary Years

At this level, our physical education programme aligns with core values of the Primary Years Programme (PYP), including the units of inquiry students explore in the classroom. Participation in team sports enables children to be more resilient, learn self-control, form healthy relationships and of course, boost their physical health.

Secondary Years

In our secondary school sports programme, the PE curriculum includes two specialists classes per week. Every year, students participate in seven units, and each lasts 5-6 weeks. Well-thought-out units are designed to promote skills in 4 areas:

Thinking skills - engaging and preparing for lessons

Attitude and approach to activities and sports

Performance and motor skills

Demonstrating knowledge and application of skills

These skills are important not only in individual and team sports, but they're also essential for success in higher education, careers and all other areas of life.

All students at OWIS have sports instruction but those students that wish to pursue further studies in PE have the option to complete an CAIE IGCSE in Physical Education in Grade 9 and 10. For our IBDP student physical education is covered under their CAS programme.
