Physical Education & Sports in BrookeHouse

Brooke House believes that Physical Education/Sports provides life skills that encourage students to be active and fit for life. It has a positive impact on students’ physical, mental, and emotional health.

Physical education/sports though not an academic subject at elementary level, is given the same attention and rigor as other core subjects. Physical education/sports in Brooke House is designed to develop motor skills, knowledge and behaviours for active living, physical fitness, sportsmanship, self-efficacy and emotional intelligence.


Our Physical Education/Sports philosophy is founded on the expectation that the physically literate child will;

  • Demonstrate competency in a variety of motor skills and movement patterns.
  • Apply knowledge of concepts, principles taught to everyday life
  • Exhibit responsible personal and social behaviour that respects self and others.
  • Demonstrate the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a
  • Health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness.
  • Recognize the value of physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge,
    Self-expression and/or social interaction.
