Physical Education at BISR has the goal of contributing to the development of an individual’s physical, intellectual, emotional and social maturity. In this respect, our program seeks to promote a positive self-image in students by challenging, guiding and encouraging them, by giving them the freedom to make mistakes, and by instilling the confidence and resilience to continually try again. At BISR, we are looking to promote self-belief, sportsmanship, teamwork and cooperation. The overall aim is to develop physically confident students.
