žž

At žž Christian School, it is our desire to provide every student with an opportunity to participate in a wide range of sports and physical activity.

As well as supporting students in exploring, developing and using their God-given gifts and abilities, we hope to nurture a lifelong love of sport, and an appreciation of the benefits it offers.

žž has a range of sports facilities to enable students to enjoy physical activity in a safe and supportive environment. From large grassed areas, playing fields and hard courts, to a fully sprung gymnasium floor, children of all ages and stages are well catered for.

Whenever our students participate in sport, we encourage them to do it all in a way that honours and glorifies God. Physical education is part of the curriculum, and while students develop their skills and build fitness, they also learn valuable lessons about participation, commitment, responsibility and teamwork.

For our Infants students, the focus in sport is on participation, confidence and fun. Students are encouraged to develop fundamental skills in movement whilst growing in their communication skills with their peers.

As they move into Primary School, students are encouraged to participate in a wider range of sports whilst growing in competence, precision and teamwork.
