The Purpose of Physical Education at BSI
Physical Education class, from PK4 through third grade, is essential to the development of our students. BSI’s program seeks to develop basic skills and physical capacities according to the student’s corresponding level. Furthermore, PE class is essential to the development of healthy habits, as well as to the nurturing of moral and social values.
Starting from fourth grade, PE class is sports oriented, and the purpose of the class is to teach the students the basic rules of each sport addressed, as well as help the students develop athletic skills, in order to achieve their development, stimulating teamwork and competition.
Many of the sports opportunities that we offer are available through enrolling in CCA’s and ECA’s. We don’t only practice the classic team playing sports, such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, etc. but we also have space for tennis, ping pong, bicycle riding, board games like chess, and others. The purpose is to give our students the most opportunities to express their competitive skills, exercise their bodies, and stimulate their minds positively. The active practice of sports has already been proven by science to provide numerous benefits to the general wellness of a human being. Please check the ECA & CCA section of our website If you wish to get more information about the available sports activities.
