Physical Education


The objective of our School’s Physical Education program is to exploit sports and other athletic activities in order to contribute to the harmonious and balanced development of our students’ intellectual capabilities as well as their physical and emotional wellbeing. We focus on three main areas of our students’ development:  the Psychomotor, Emotional and Cognitive domains

 

  1. With respect to the Psychomotor domain, our objective is to help students develop a kinesthetic sense, visual and auditory perception, as well as knowledge about their bodies.We help them cultivate rhythm and improve upon their natural, physical abilities such as speed, flexibility and agility. Simple, compound and complex motor skills are honed.
  2. With respect to the Emotional domain, our objective is help children develop sociability; virtues such as cooperation, team spirit, courage, and responsibility; as well as self-esteem and self-confidence.  Additionally, we help them develop qualities such as honesty, fairness, respect for opponents and good sportsmanship.
  3. With respect to the Cognitive domain, students are taught rules associated with sports and athletic events, as well as historical facts related to Olympic ideals, Greek traditions and folk dances.  Students are also taught basic rules of hygiene, proper nutrition, health improvement, tackling obesity, as well as about alternative sports.

Overall, our fundamental goal is to help children cultivate and develop physical, mental and emotional capabilities that will allow them to grow into healthy and happy adults.
