Fostering a love for being physically active.
At Lisieux, we believe that regular involvement in movement has a positive effect on physical, social and mental wellbeing.
Our goal is to foster a love of being physically active that will stay with the students throughout their lifetime.
Our Mind & Body program integrates the BluEarth approach, which encourages social interaction and exploration of body movement in space. Students are encouraged to participate fully in activities without giving up when things become challenging, with the goal of building resilience.
As students progress through the primary years, the focus increases to group interaction, teamwork, consideration of others, further development of resilience and problem solving skills, and managing emotions when expectations are challenged during games and activities.
Students continue to build on fundamental motor skills through exposure to more complex games and activities. The structure of the program challenges students to develop strategies, collaboration and competitive spirit.
