We play sports to exercise and stay fit!

Middle and Upper School students play basketball and volleyball this semester at the same time doing circuit and other fitness activities that focus on their cardiovascular endurance and upper body strength.  This semester they had their PRE-Test, MID-Test and the recently concluded POST-TEST. Everyone was happy to witnessed the progress of their fitness test result.

Motor Skills and Physical Fitness

Great and fun play helps children achieve their physical potential in developing motor skills and fitness. Physical fitness involves cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, body composition, muscular strength and endurance. Motor skills include locomotor skills ( running, jumping, hopping) and non-locomotor skills ( twist, curl, sway, bend). Various activities and great games were prepared for children’s physical development.

For grades 3 & 4,  students pass the physical fitness test to provide the basis of their fitness level. They need  to improve their fitness level (scores) towards the end of the 4th quarter. To attain this, they are encouraged to participate in after school activities, exercise at home and engage in sports. In class, we prepare various activities, games and play sports to improve their fitness level.

According to World Health Organization, elementary students who play sports are more likely to become active teens who, in turn, are more likely to be active adults. Being active is one of the most important ways to prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes and a range of other debilitating ailments.
