P. E. Department

This course strives to offer a broad spectrum of activities in order that the student may find a degree of success which will, in turn, motivate him toward a lifetime of physical well-being.

The curriculum is designed categorically into two divisions:

  1. Team sports, including softball, football, basketball, soccer and volleyball, are used to emphasize the concepts of social interaction and unity. These team sports also promote a number of skills necessary for success in life, including leadership, team-building, accountability and sacrifice for the common good.
  2. Sports for life, including weight training and conditioning, are departmental tools for encouraging participation in physical functions beyond graduation. Young student athletes are encouraged to develop good habits aimed at improving their overall physical condition.

One key that demonstrates success in our program is when the student himself begins to assess his own fitness changes as a result of physical activity. Nothing encourages members of this department more than to see a student recognize improvement in his own personal fitness and then begin to implement his own personal fitness and activity plan.

One benefit of living in the 21st century is that we understand the consequences and risks associated with an inactive lifestyle. That is why we at St. Thomas want to encourage students to become physically active not just for one period a day but that physical activity becomes a part of their daily lives even after high school.
