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