Curriculum: Physical Education And After School Sport
Primary PE Curriculum
The Primary Physical Education (PE) curriculum at Green School aims to meet both the needs of the Three Frame Day with the Specific Learning Outcomes (SLO’s) from Health and Well-being, as well as developing the Sporting Skills required to play in the BSSA (Bali Schools Sports Association) Sports. These two aims are not mutually exclusive, but rather complement each other. For example, within the SLO’s for Health and Wellbeing, one can look at basic loco-motor skills, such as awareness of space, and see that this is easily applied to how an individual positions themselves on a court or playing field during a game.
Each Grade in Primary School has two lessons of Physical Education each week; one lesson focuses on BSSA sport and the second on Health and Well-being. The sport class focuses on sporting skills required during the BSSA sport season, such as passing and trapping a ball with the feet during the soccer season. The Health and Wellbeing classes will cover the following: Enhancing Personal Health and Physical Development, Developing Movement Concepts and Skills, Enriching Relationships with Others, and Promoting Healthy Communities and Environments.
Middle School PE Curriculum:
Physical Education(PE) in the Middle School (Grades 6-8) is geared towards promoting physical fitness and healthy lifestyles through: athletic activities, games, gymnastic activities, and outdoor/adventurous activities. The focus is on the enjoyment of physical activities and strong emphasis is placed on differentiation so that each student’s individual needs are met according to their ability level.
Middle School students have two PE lessons each week. In these lessons we also follow the sporting seasons of the BSSA to develop skills required for various sports.
High School PE Curriculum:
Physical Education in High School is divided into two sections: BSSA Sports and Health and Fitness. In BSSA Sports we follow the Bali Schools Sport Season and provide specialist training in football(soccer), volleyball, basketball and athletics.
In Health and Fitness various courses are offered to promote healthy lifestyles and to equip students with the knowledge and experience to maintain health and fitness even after they have left school. Courses include: Exercise for Fun and Social Experience, Designing Your Own PEP(Personal Exercise Program), Principles and Methods of Training, First Aid, Health and Nutrition, Coaching their own classes in an activity of choice, and Water safety Skills.
