St. Andrews International School, Green Valley’s Physical Education (PE) Programme is committed to developing personal wellness and physical fitness. Regular physical activity in childhood and adolescence improves strength and endurance; helps build healthy bones and muscles; helps control weight; reduces anxiety and stress; and increases self-esteem, mood, and concentration.
PE instruction is sequential and planned to develop and improve performance skills, to impart knowledge and concepts relevant to the activity, to introduce information concerning the fitness and health benefits of regular exercise and to help students develop and maintain physical fitness. Activities are rotated throughout each term and include: Football, Swimming, Rugby, Basketball and Athletics. Students take part in two lessons per week with an opportunity to take part in some form of sport after school as part of the extra-curricular activities. Our football and basketball teams compete within Pattaya, Rayong, Bangkok and across Asia. Some of our other sports include: Tee-ball, Football, Basketball, Track and Field, Netball, Volleyball, Touch Rugby, Cricket, AFL (Aussie Rules), Swimming, Ultimate Frisbee, Cross Country, Aerobics, Gymnastics, Handball, Cheerleading, Acrogymnastics, Tennis, Table Tennis, Badminton and Floor Hockey.
