Batesville Primary School takes a great deal of pride in their physical education program. We strongly believe that being an overall healthy person involves mental, physical, and social well being. The focus of the physical education program is to incorporate these three aspects to help students achieve total wellness. It is important that students learn at a young age to make good decisions regarding their health and wellness so that these decisions can be made easier as they grow older.
At BPS we strive to expose students to a wide variety of physical activities at a young age. If students can find activities that they are interested in early, they will become more likely to remain physically active for the rest of their lives. In physical education class, students will learn many different team sports, individual sports, recreational games, and lifetime activities. Students will also learn the importance of sportsmanship and how to work well with others in order to achieve a common goal. In all, the main goal of the physical education program at Batesville Primary School is to promote physical activity while helping turn students into well-rounded, healthy, individuals.
