Physical activity is fundamental to life. Physical education (PE) is essentially concerned with education about, through and in movement. PE is an area of education that we acknowledge as being unique and an essential element of a sound education. While sport is valued and accepted as part of OLR's PE curriculum, it is only one component of a student's physical education. PE is more than a preparation of students to play sport. It is a significant part of each individual's development, as it focuses on their understanding and enjoyment of, and competence in, the physical areas of learning and experience. It is preparation for life.
Students are encouraged to to build on our all-important pillars each week.
'Be BRAVE and have a go'
'Pursue your personal best'
'Treat others the way you would like to be treated'
