Sports

Physical Education and Sport are an integral part of student life at Kellett. A great importance is placed on the value of these areas as a core element of a balanced education, which is delivered through both the curriculum and extra curricular activities. Our aim is to encourage participation, opportunity, sportsmanship and also to promote a healthy and active lifestyle.

All students follow a broad and balanced programme in school, which encourages their individual development across a number of areas. They also learn to play an important part within a team. A wide range of activities are taught and this allows for more specific skills and tactics to be developed, as students progress through the school.

Through our ECAs, curriculum sports, and our affiliation with the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA), Kellett students are afforded the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sports against some of the best schools in Asia.

Through our house system, Senior School students are able to compete in inter-house competitions on a regular basis.

As a result of our commitment to PE and Sport, many of our pupils go on to national honours, representing Hong Kong in various sports, and building on the foundations they have gained from school. Our links with the local sporting clubs and organisations are very strong and continue to grow, as does our reputation for sport within Hong Kong.

PE Curriculum

As part of the PE curriculum Kellett develops students’ competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school.

A high-quality PE curriculum enables all students to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity. They develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. When they are performing, they think about what they are doing, analyse the situation and make decisions. They also reflect on their own and others’ performances and find ways to improve them. As a result, they develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles.

PE helps students develop personally and socially. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility. They take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating. Through the range of experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.

Students in years 7-11 will participate in 3 hours of physical activity a week. There will be onedouble lesson (2 hours), which is known as the ‘games’ lesson and one ‘core’ physical education lesson (1 hour). Students in years 12-13 have 1 hour of physical activity a week.

As part of the PE core curriculum every student will represent their house in a number of sporting competitions. The main focus of this intra school competition is for every student to have the opportunity to participate.

In years 12 and 13 students follow a health and wellness programme which focuses on four key areas team sports, physical fitness, leadership and first aid. The main focus of this programme is on physical wellness and being active with some elements instructional such as a First Aid qualification.

We offer both I/GCSE (Year 10/11) and A-Level (Year 12/13) qualifications in Physical Education.

House Sports

As part of the core Year 7-13 PE Curriculum, every student will represent their house in a number of sporting competitions throughout the year. The main focus of this intra school competition is for every student to have the opportunity to participate. House competitions are played at the end of every games unit which allows the students to acquire or develop appropriate skills enabling them to take an active role in all these house competitions.

Development Sports Programme

As part of our inclusive physical activity programme there is a development programme that runs alongside our core curriculum. The development programme is open to all students in Year 7-9. We want every student to find a sport or activity that they really love, that they will want to take part in for the rest of their life. We offer a range of activities through the curriculum and as much exposure to these sports as possible through the development programmes. These sessions are for students that enjoy training with their friends as well as for the students who aspire to represent Kellett in any of these sports.

Performance Sports Programme

As part of our elite sports programme we have a wide variety of sporting teams that represent Kellett in the Hong Kong School Sports Federation (HKSSF), International School Sports Federation Hong Kong ISSFHK, Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) and Federation of British Schools in Asia (FOBISIA).

The performance programme is a competitive programme and selection for training squads and teams is through trials. Details of trials for teams are publicised through student daily notices and in the e-bulletin.

For Season 1, trials are held during the first weeks of school. New students should promptly get details from the PE department. Unfortunately, it is not possible to accommodate everyone who tries for the Kellett sports teams. However, it we strive to mirror the performance programme with a development programme, which is available to all, in an attempt to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate in a sport of their choice.
