The IHC Physical Education Programme is here, in full flight and jam-packed with in-house and community events to better enrich the lives of our students. The ultimate goal is to provide fun, challenging and engaging experiences within the sport, leisure and recreational settings that will encourage students to make lifelong commitments to active lifestyles.The early childhood years have a large focus on fundamental movement skills, whilst early adolescence begin modified games and the secondary students learn about invasion, net/wall/court games, striking sports and target activities.
We will offer a variety of sporting opportunities including three in-house carnivals (swimming, cross country and athletics), a Colour Run and a Tabloid Sports HPE Day. Incursions will range from adventures such an Inflatable obstacle course to specialist coaches and demonstrations from professional clubs and athletes. This year we also plan to partake in the three interschool competitions, and two sport-specific games days against local schools. These additional events provide students in all year groups the opportunity to test and demonstrate their skills in the specialist sporting arenas.
As the College grows, it is my intention to provide opportunities to further develop the interest and skills of our students in the hope that they are well prepared and able to study Physical Education Studies as a WACE course by 2020.
