Physical Education

At St Francis Xavier School, we are extremely proud of our Physical Education program. Our students participate in a 40 minute lessons each week with a dedicated sports teacher.

Our Physical Education program not only helps to teach the children the importance of an active lifestyle, but it also teaches the children lifelong skills about teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play which they will use in their everyday life on the playground and beyond.
