The learning activities in health and physical education are planned in line with four underlying concepts as-
1. Personal health and physical development, in which students develop age appropriate knowledge, understanding, attitude and skills necessary to maintain and enhance their physical development and personal well being.
2. Movement concepts and motor skills, in which students develop age specific learning outcomes related to movement concepts and motor skills as mandated by the HPE manual of the CBSE.
3. Healthy communities, wherein students contribute to healthy livelihood in communities to which they belong.
4. Relationships with other people, wherein students develop age appropriate understanding, skills and attitudes that refine their social interactions.
Extending education beyond the confines of the classroom, sport activities cultivate in students the values of team spirit, perseverance, discipline and healthy competition. AWS offers a well-balanced programme of sports and physical education. A range of sporting activities will be part of regular curriculum delivery, whereas a few activities will be offered as part of the AAA programme. Fundamental and progressive training of basketball, tennis, badminton, kho-kho cricket and other outdoor games along with a range of indoor games make our sports programme competent. We ensure strict adherence to the CBSE mandate as per the HPE (Health and Physical Education) manual.
