At STEP, physical education is defined as programs associated with physical fitness, motor movement, skill development, neuromuscular coordination, social interaction and knowledge to develop meaningful movement patterns. We believe our students are the future citizens of all societies; each child is a unique Individual, Who needs a caring and stimulating environment, for emotional, intellectual, social and physical growth. Therefore, our physical culture and sports programs are designed to help a student explore his/her optimum athletic potential and adopt long lasting fitness and wellness routines.
STEP Physical Education curriculum is designed to achieve 5 major areas.
- Achieving a level of skill performance to participate in physical activity.
- Develop a regular fitness program.
- Attaining a commendable level of Physical fitness.
- Awareness about the benefits of a physical activity program.
- Lifetime implications and value of Physical Education.
These areas define the core learning concepts on which STEP School P.E Curriculum is based upon. A sequential and gradual application of the curriculum will inculcate within the students, the principles of fitness and wellness.
