Physical activity through sports and games is an essential ingredient in the personality development of every student. We believe that academics and sports together can help a student realise his/her potential. Activity on the playfield develops the qualities of teamwork, leadership, dedication, discipline, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Sports equip students to face the challenges of an increasingly competitive world. The Physical Education program at Khaitan World School is designed with the understanding that children have vastly varying physical abilities and hence require exposure to different types of routines and sports. Thus the school offers a variety of sports and physical education activities such as cooperative games, team building activities, frisbee, basketball, cricket, table tennis, football, badminton, mini tennis, swimming and shooting.
In the Foundation years, students participate in the Grassroot Skills Program, which consists of four 50-minute classes per week. These classes focus on developing fundamental skills such as running, jumping, catching, throwing, and hand-eye coordination. Rotation through each of these skills is conducted according to learning cycles, ensuring that students have the opportunity to develop proficiency in each area.
Moving on to the Preparatory years, students engage in the Youth Skills Program, which includes four 50-minute classes per week. This program offers a wide range of activities, including cooperative games, team building activities, swimming, shooting, frisbee, basketball, cricket, table tennis, football, badminton, and mini tennis. Similar to the Foundation years, rotation through these activities is organized based on learning cycles, allowing students to develop their skills in each discipline.
As students progress into the Middle Years, they participate in the Middle Years PE Program. This program involves two 60-minute classes per week and encompasses cooperative games, team building activities, swimming, shooting, frisbee, basketball, cricket, table tennis, football, badminton, and mini tennis. Again, rotation through these activities is structured according to learning cycles, providing students with the opportunity to develop proficiency in each sport or activity.
Overall, these programs are designed to offer a comprehensive physical education experience, ensuring that students have a well-rounded exposure to different sports and activities while fostering their skill development in a systematic manner.
