Each student at Al-Faisal College receives formal physical education instruction. The goal is to promote lifelong participation and enjoyment of exercise and sport, while fostering a healthy active lifestyle. Other lifelong lessons can be learnt through sport including but not limited to; team spirit, mateship, work ethic and persistence.
The school offers a wide variety of both individual and team activities, which are aimed at the total development of each student. Areas covered include all the major sports, such as Soccer, Football, Netball, Volleyball, Tennis, Softball, Cricket, Basketball as well as gymnastics, swimming, fitness, movement skills and outdoor activities such as orienteering and bike riding.
As a school, we run our own carnivals in Athletics and Cross Country. Those students who show a real ability for these areas then have the opportunity to go on to compete against students from other Independent Schools. These events are opportunities for students to take part in friendly competition against other students in the school. Students are divided into 4 houses: Red, Blue, Green and Yellow.
Children all get to participate in formal sport/PE lessons On these days they are able to wear their sports uniform. These days will be given at the start of each year.
A comprehensive swimming program is conducted for children from Year 2, with emphasis on water safety. Students progress through a skills based swimming program gaining certificates as they master what is expected at each Year Level. The lessons are conducted at the local aquatic centre.
