Physical Education is an essential aspect in the education of our students. It is considered as a way to socialize and consolidate values.
Washington School offers a complete Sports education since early childhood, giving emphasis on “fair play”, respect for rivals and the wish of self-improvement thus transforming sports in an area of comradeship and fun.
Activity performed in classes at School is complemented with the participation of students in school friendlies, competition among WS teams, national and international interschool competitions. All of these promote team spirit and a healthy competition.
In Kindergarten the development of motor skills is fostered, including those related to coordination and the basics of sports with elements specific for this age range. In K5, we include pre-sport activities and the use of elements for gymnastics (mats, springs, etc.) The aim is to focus on play and enjoy outdoor activities.
From 4th form, Primary School, onwards, students participate in matches of diverse sports. Our school year is divided in two seasons: one corresponding to Hockey, for girls, and Rugby, for boys, while the other is oriented to olympic sports and other sports such as soccer, basketball, handball, etc.
In Secondary School volleyball is also included as an option for boys and girls and we continue participating in competitions of olympic sports, such as the A.CO.BI.(Bilingual Schools Association) competition, organized by Washington School.
Camps and Sports Tour
Supporting an integral education, camps are carried out as from K5. As from 4th form, Primary School, students participate in an annual Sport Tour. These experiences promote the development of respect and caring attitudes; it allows children and adolescents live with their peers and adults the benefits of team building and caring for nature.
