Physical Education and Afterschool Sport
EMS Physical Education Mission
The mission of the English Modern School Physical Education Department is to educate students to think “outside the box”, improve communication skills, develop healthy bodies, and promote positive attitudes towards lifetime physical activity while improving motor skill ability. With a quality physical education program in place, each student will have the tools and knowledge to make responsible lifestyle choices that directly impacts his/her health and overall well-being.
Background of English Modern School Physical Education
We aim to develop the understanding of personal health and physical development; creating opportunities for the expansion of movement skills and allowing students to create positive relationships.
Through these learning areas we focus on Active Involvement, Acceptance of Challenges, Self-Management, Movement and Motor Skills and Relating to Others. All of these skills are important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and will give students the skills to live a healthy lifestyle once they leave school.
The movement areas are: Invasion Games, Target Games, Net games, Health related Exercise and Striking and Fielding. In these units we focus on a number of different sports and modified games.
After School Sport
In English Modern School we offer the students opportunities to get involved in a number of after school activities. These activities include the Quess (Qatar United English Speaking Schools) Leagues for Secondary and QPPSSA (Qatar Private Primary School Sports Association) Leagues for Primary. These leagues involve playing other top schools in Qatar. EMS also offers organised play after school which is played internally with EMS students. We want all students to be able to participate in afterschool activities as there are many rewarding benefits. The activities occur at different times during the year. Timings and different activities will be posted on the Sports Board in the Gym as well as the teachers letting their students know when to sign up or trial.
