“To aim for excellence and stand out as the Premier PE Department in Cyprus”
The PE Department aims to achieve Excellence in Teaching and Learning in the morning Physical Education lessons that we offer for our students. We aim to develop the fitness and sporting skills of our students in a range of sports, whilst we also focus on the importance of respect, fair play and effort in all our sporting endeavours. In line with the philosophy of our Founder, we try to offer numerous sporting participation opportunities for our students. One way of achieving this is through Afternoon Games, where we offer a wide range of Physical Recreation options for our students. The more competitive students can represent their House in a number of Inter-House Competitions, with the more able ones having opportunities to join our School Teams and play competitive sport against other schools and sports clubs.
We aim to be active in the community and we seek opportunities for our students to participate in events organised by the Ministry of Education, the Nicosia Private Schools as well as competitions organised by Cyprus Sports Federations and the Strovolos Municipality. We regularly play competitive sport in a friendly atmosphere against the ESOBGA sports teams, as part of the Founder’s Day Events and the Salakian Hockey Tournament.
We continuously strive to improve what we do and we are currently going through a phase of improving our facilities. Our multi-use Sports Centre was completely renovated in 2018 and brand new changing rooms were built. A new weights room opened in 2019 and our Hockey pitch received much-needed maintenance as well. Our latest project is the new Tennis Centre that was completed in early 2020, consisting of four brand new state-of-the-art tennis courts, that are available for us to use during our morning and afternoon sports activities. At the same time, our Futsal Pitches, Main Football Ground and Athletics Track are on their way to being redeveloped as well. Finally, two new outdoor Basketball Courts will be constructed, to replace the ones that were taken up when the new Newham Building was erected.
The PE Department does strive to achieve excellence in all that we do, whilst encouraging our students to get involved in sport, get fitter and healthier, make friends, enjoy themselves and do their best to be successful!
