A Catholic education is rooted in the perspective that educating the whole person means tending to the mind, soul, and body of every individual. Mater Christi’s physical education program is attentive to that view of the human person, and seeks to grow a healthy body, with the knowledge that a healthy body contributes to a sound mind and a nourished soul.
Students in preschool through Grade 8 are introduced to age-appropriate exercises, fitness, skills, and games that strengthen the body and are lots of fun! Building habits of physical fitness and wellness for a lifetime are primary goals of our program. Building self-confidence and the great capacity of one’s own body to perform are also critical pieces of physical education. We want children to love P.E., and to enjoy physical activity for the rest of their lives!
