Department Mission statement
The aim of the PE Department at MIHSG is to empower the students with the knowledge, values, skills and personal qualities to be confident and keen to take part in sport and physical activities. The Department offers a vast array of sporting opportunities for all of our students. We believe that PE is unique in its ability to develop the ‘whole’ person. We value high quality PE lessons and the extended curriculum opportunities where our students’ relationships, social development, fun and health are enhanced and promoted. We also firmly believe that competitive sport and ‘opportunities for ALL’ is an important part of school life.
