Physical Education

Sophia Mundi’s physical education program is structured around the belief that students should have a sense of growing in strength and a sense of purpose in their movement.

Our physical education program is split into three simple stages. In the prep and lower primary, we encourage students’ movement through free play and through imitated low-structured activities. Later in the primary school we embed the principles and practices of physical education by introducing structured games and activities. In the upper primary and throughout the secondary school the students are challenged further by providing more complex, structured activity including sports.

In addition to our onsite facilities, our PE program utilises our local surroundings and facilities to provide a wide array of activities and experiences for our students.

As well as promoting fitness, coordination and health, our Physical Education curriculum also supports students to:

  • Have the ability and communication skills to build, maintain and enrich respectful relationships and the insight to discern and respond to imbalanced relationship paradigms on a personal, community or professional level.
  • Know and apply understanding of the effects of different levels of nutrition, physical activity, rest and sleep on the health of the human body.
  • Access, evaluate and use the applied knowledge to develop good habits and practices that promote and support their own and others safety, health and wellbeing throughout their lives.
  • Reflect on how varied and changing personal and contextual factors shape understanding of, and opportunities for, health and physical activity locally, regionally and globally and are committed to the future health of their own and others’ communities.
