Physical Education News

The Scotch boys have been hard at work and play in Health and Physical Education over the past few weeks. The gymnastics programme is well and truly under way and this is a core component of the Physical Education element of school. Boys learn various skills in gymnastics and focus on strength, flexibility and discipline. The fundamental movement skills that are learnt are carried through into all aspects of the Physical Education programme and play an important role in all the winter and summer sports the boys participate in. Our swimming programme finished recently and the boys have worked hard at swim squad and in the pool during lessons. The Scotch swimming team took part in the JPSSA Inter-School Carnival last Thursday and all the boys gave their best in what was a very strong competition. Big congratulations to Will Howie who won his 50m Freestyle event at this carnival.
