The physical health and development of our students is an integral part of our endeavor to teach and guide them in all essential areas of growth. Physical Education and its relationship to health are also emphasized because we know that they are key factors in the child’s success in learning.
The goals of the physical education program are:
- to equip our students with exercise skills and knowledge that can guide them to the adoption of a healthy lifestyle;
- to increase students’ stamina, strength, flexibility, and movement;
- to teach them the skills that will enable them to participate in a variety of sports activities; and
- to guide them in developing good sportsmanship, cooperation, and honesty in the sports they play.
St. Thomas hosts a Annual Field Day at Butler University every May and it is a great way to celebrate the close of school and beginning of summer!
