Physical and Health Education focuses on both learning about and learning through physical activity. Both dimensions help students to develop skills across the curriculum.

Physical and Health Education should foster the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes that will contribute to a student’s balanced and healthy lifestyle. Through physical and health education, students can learn to appreciate and respect the ideas of others and develop effective collaboration and communication skills. The discipline also offers many opportunities to build positive interpersonal relationships that can help students to develop a sense of social responsibility.

Our purpose and objectives of the sports meets:

  • Physical, social and moral development 
  • Building strength, endurance and psychomotor skills
  • Increase self-awareness and self-confidence 
  • Improved teamwork, sportsmanship, collaboration, communication and interpersonal skills 
  • Increased knowledge about well-being (mental and physical well-being) 

Although there are many bright spots in the academic year, the annual intramural sports meets between pupils from all six villages served by EduNations’ schools is one of the most exciting.

At the start of second term in January, the sporting activities are organized, and all students beginning from Nursery to Senior Secondary are divided into 4 teams represented by a color and carry a house name from a current or former board member or founder of EduNations.  

Intramural competitions are held in each of the 6 communities. 

Students are categorized into: Feathers(tiny tots), Junior, Intermediate, and Senior respectively. Each of the house master(s) act as coaches, taking the names of those students who fall into their house colors and training them according to the various events such as track and field events including 50m, 100m, 200m, 300m, 400m, 2x200m and 2x400m, relay race, bicycle race, music and chair, tough of war, high jump, long jump, etc.

Kumba S Mansaray, a 7th grade student from Gbenekoro said, “Oh it’s was true when they said all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.  I feel extremely relaxed all my worries I don’t remember on that day. “

Haja Kargbo said, “Now I believe practice makes perfect. I didn’t believe that I was a good runner, but through the help of the house masters of Krieger House, I became the winner of the 1,500 meter race for girls.”

Nadaywa Kamara said, “The entire sports meet was amazing; it helps us as students to showcase our talent.”
