“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.”
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
 

Philosophy of the department
Physical Education makes a valuable contribution to the education of every student at LPGS. It is unique in the way that students learn and refine new skills either individually or in groups through an appreciation of how the body works and adapts to new situations. Such knowledge is obtained not only through participation but also through observing and analysing the development of oneself and others. Through a sound knowledge base students are encouraged to plan safe and effective exercise programmes to promote healthy lifestyles for the future.

What we expect from our students
During Physical Education lessons, students are expected to be well prepared, and willing to try their best. They will have many opportunities to work individually as well as in pairs and in small groups whereby building communication and leadership skills. There are many opportunities for students to take part in extra-curricular clubs and represent the school in fixtures and tournaments. We hope that students at LPGS are able to make positive choices about their personal health and fitness that will last a lifetime.
