"A curriculum designed to equip students for the challenging world of the twenty-first century needs to ensure that students develop as people who take increasing responsibility for their own physical wellbeing, their own learning, their own relationships with others and their role in the local, national and global community."

Victorian Essential Learning Standards, Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority, Victoria, Australia (2008).

Physical education in a PYP school is more than just student participation in sports and games. Its purpose is to develop a combination of transferrable skills promoting physical, intellectual, emotional and social development; to encourage present and future choices that contribute to long-term healthy living; and to understand the cultural significance of physical activities for individuals and communities. Therefore, in the PYP, there should be specific opportunities for learning about movement and through movement in a range of contexts. Students of all abilities are challenged to improve their movement skills, but they are also supported and encouraged to enjoy physical activity and see it as part of a healthy and active lifestyle with connections to other areas of the curriculum and community.

At AIS, we teach PSPE in all grades KG-Gr5 while focusing on all IB concepts relating to physical education, health, teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership, endurance and responsibility for the school as a whole.

 In addition to daily PSPE activities and lessons, we offer after school team sports and activity clubs, little league, gymnastics, fencing…to name a few; in order to present the children with a wider variety of sports and fitness opportunities.

PSPE news will be updated on AIS PSPE & The Arts Facebook Page.
