There is an established link between physical activity and students' academic performance. A student's brain does not keep itself healthy independently. It is the connection with a healthy, moving body that can help improve brain performance.
There is also very definite evidence of improved cognitive performance (attention, memory, concentration), self-esteem, mental health (reduced depression, anxiety, stress), enjoyment and lesson engagement from school students' participation in physical activity.
While engaging in sport, scholars also learn life skills such as team work, leadership skills, social growth, communication, time management and maintaining a healthy lifestyle – a necessary skill in an age of convenience.
We request Parents to support us in this endeavour, as it is vital to both the physical and mental health of your child to remain fit and healthy during and after their adolescent years.
