In C/D Physical Education is a core element of a balanced education for boys and contributes towards the integrated development of the mind and body. It builds self-confidence and self-esteem, enhances physical, social and cognitive development and improves academic achievement. By encouraging qualities such as perseverance, initiative and independence pupils experience a feeling of success and enjoyment.
