The Physical Education program incorporates Athletics, Baseball, Football, Gymnastics, Swimming and Basketball. Modified games are played in some instances, but at this level the real emphasis and the majority of the time allocation is on skills.
Baseball is chosen because it incorporates vital skills such as hitting, catching and throwing. Athletics skills are taught for their own worth and to prepare boys for their involvement in the House Athletics competition. Olympic Gymnastics provide a great opportunity to develop confidence, strength, balance, agility and power.
The development of strength is an important part of the program. Boys should be able to climb a rope or hold themselves up in rings or bars. Added muscle bulk will help in sports such as Football, Rugby, Soccer and Hockey.
The Physical Education department has a strict uniform policy.
The uniform is:
• black, blue or white shorts or Scotch track suit pants
• house polo top or white tennis shirt or plain white T-shirt
• Scotch slicker (optional)
• navy blue Speedos
• cap (Term 1 and 4 for outside activities)
Sick boys will not be asked to participate. Injured boys will have their program modified so that they continue to take part in any lesson and gain some benefits from the lesson. Parents are asked to supply a note outlining any illness or injury.
