Health & Physical Education

​​At St Thomas’ we believe our Health and Physical Education and Sport Program should:

  • Provide each child with the opportunity to develop skills and increase knowledge in the areas of Health, Safety, Outdoor and Sports Education.

  • To develop positive attitudes towards participation, effort, fair play and sport spirit.

  • Be for all children of all abilities and ages.

  • Expose the children to a variety of skills/experiences for their adult leisure time.

  • Promote the physical development of the whole child to enhance the spiritual, academic, artistic and social aspects of the school curriculum.

  • Provide children with an awareness and knowledge of their bodies and how they work and of health related fitness.

  • Involve each child in regular physical activity

  • Foster and encourage personal satisfaction, enjoyment and a sense of achievement by striving toward individual excellence

  • Provide opportunity to use skills developed within a game/circuit setting, in our school and with other schools.
