"What can be learned on the ground, cannot be learned in the classroom ! "
Physical Education is an article of faith with Patrician Brothers and they produced many world and Olympic champions in track and field events. At St. Patrick’s Academy, Dehradun, we lay a strong emphasis on sports and physical development of our children. Our sports curriculum is planned and designed for students to develop and enhance skills like strength, speed, endurance, agility, flexibility, control, balance etc. Sports today have also evolved as forms of entertainment and also offer promising careers.
We believe in mass participation, exposing our students to a number of sports events at inter-school, state and national level.
Every child’s fantasy begins with being the next Lionel Messi. Football is the most popular sport and every child must have that experience. We have dedicated football fields along with guided tutoring.
Basketball adds on to the development of a child’s mind, tolerance, coordination and most importantly imparts a sense of rigor. Like any other sport, even basketball counts for a lot of practice and dedication.
Volleyball is a sport that requires teamwork and coordination. Children learn to work in a team, take responsibility and trust their teammates.
Activities like Marathon, Races, Long Jump etc. are all a part of Athletics which boost the morale of our students to try harder with better preparations every time they perform. These activities stretch their abilities and enhance their stamina, muscle tone and have a number of physical benefits.
