Sports / PE / and Sports International Services (SIS) and JIS
Students at JIS are active and encouraged to be fit, healthy and enjoy an interest in sport and out door activities. As part of our P.E. programme the students receive 3 sessions of timetabled activity per week. There is an outdoor 'pitch' based session on our astroturf field, a session in the school gym and a swimming session in the pool. The students are able to continue swimming sesisons all year round as the pool is indoor and fully heated.
The P.E. curriculum is integrated into the PYP curriculum as much as possible. Students learn to explore their own skills, capabilities and understandings through sport, adventure based activities and also outdoor explorations in the local forest (Tai Po Kau country park) located opposite to the school. Students are enncouraged to aim high and achieve a great deal through physical activity. The school may be small but we enjoy considerable success in a range of team and individual events around Hong Kong.
