As Mandela said: “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
Welcome to the Sport and PE department at LICS. In keeping in line with the school vision of ‘maximising the potential of future world citizens’, our department strives to challenge students to grow in their sporting, health, wellbeing and academic abilities and to be adequately prepared for University by the end of their A-levels. We believe that students should graduate from secondary school prepared for the demands of post-secondary education, meaningful careers and effective citizenship. Through our Physical Education and competitive sporting programme, we hope that students will continue to develop their physical literacy skills, while exploring, analysing and impacting on the world around them.
We are committed to learning experiences that will enable our students to develop and achieve an understanding of physical wellbeing and a passion for lifelong participation.
In Physical Education our curriculum vision is clear, and student focused:
Engage, enjoy, succeed
To create an enjoyable environment for both staff and pupils where together, we strive to learn and improve, and where participation and achievement are measured and celebrated.
As a department, we aim to provide a challenging, disciplined, and safe environment for high quality learning and teaching. Pupils should experience a balance of activities, which has the necessary consistency and breadth to develop the Curriculum.
By the end of their physical education at Lusaka International Community School, students should have developed a personal commitment to, and genuine passion for, maintaining their health and well-being into adult life.
