Are You Ready for PE?


Are you ready?

This is the question we will be asking all our students when they arrive at PE lessons.

Please work with your child to make sure they have everything they need for our lessons:

PE Classes IST PE Uniform Children must come to school with appropriate gear on PE days.

  • Sports Shoes – no sandals or Crocs please
  • Water bottle and Hat (for PE and recess)
  • School uniform to change into after PE (Grade 4 and 5 only)
  • No jewellery – necklaces, long ear-rings (stud ear-rings are permitted)
  • Any long hair should be tied back.

PE gear for Swimming Classes

  • Swim Shorts for boys
  • Swim Suits for girls – no bikinis
  • Swim cap and goggles (optional)
  • Towel

For the academic year 2010-2011, the PE Department is introducing a scheme to reward those students who consistently bring the correct equipment to PE lessons. Certificates will be presented at the end of each term.

If your child needs to be excused from lessons for any reason, please write a note in their link book.
