DEVELOPING THE WHOLE PERSON

The Edmund Rice School offers balanced, integrated and innovative teaching and learning experiences. It recognises that the human person has, personal, physical, intellectual, social , spiritual, moral, emotional and aesthetic abilities and seeks to promote the students development in all these areas.

Research shows that participation in youth sports helps children improve the physical, social, emotional and academic aspects of their lives. In addition, the experiences of youth sports influences their behaviour as adults. Youth sports helps to promote physical fitness and counter the rising tide of childhood obesity and other health problems.

Physical Education is offered to students of all ages within the school. Students develop the values of teamwork, individual achievement and sportsmanship through taking part in sports in the school. Students are encouraged to develop a healthy balanced lifestyle that prepares them for their lives ahead.
