Athletics

 

 

 

The Physical Education program at Our Lady of Fatima school focuses on themes that enhance a child’s physical and health development from Grades K through 7.  We believe that all students can learn exercises and games, regardless of their physical ability. Students are offered choices of engaging activities that enable them to master basic movement and life skills and then progress to more strenuous exercises. The program teaches the value of cooperation, perseverance and teamwork.  

 

Indoor classes focus on the development of physical literacy, healthy and active living, and social and community health, through sports, such as volleyball and basketball, soccer, football, badminton, as well as through various other games played throughout the year. 

 

At Our Lady of Fatima we encourage all interested boys and girls of varying talents and abilities to join a sports team. Team sports are a place to learn the sport, practice the skills, accept each other’s abilities, make friends and have fun playing the sport. Our philosophy is to encourage all students to join a sports team no matter the ability level. We follow the principle of inclusivity. That is, as long as a player comes prepared to practice regularly, exercises sportsmanship and respects the coach, fellow players and opposing players, the player is guaranteed playing time.
