Let's Play Schools Physical Education Challenge
13th April to the 5th November
“We strongly and firmly believe that Physical Education is key to ensuring that sport at schools becomes an integral part of the curriculum” - Minister Of Sport And Recreation (SRSA), Honourable Fikile Mbalula (MP)
“We aim to encourage learners to develop the skills and interests by tapping into their underutilised acumen through Physical Education and sport” - Basic Education Minister, Honourable Angie Motshekga
In order to make more children passionate about sport and schools to encourage physical education, Let’s Play in partnership with Active Education developed the ‘Schools Physical Education Challenge’.
The challenge is designed around a physical education lesson. It takes the form of an obstacle course consisting of 5 exercises found in any current physical education lesson.
* It is open to the Grade 4 learners in South Africa only.
The obstacle course consists of the following exercises:
- Slalom and dribble through agility poles.
- Catch and throw with a soccer ball.
- Upper body strength exercise.
- Agility drill.
- Mini hurdles for speed and agility training
The objective of the challenge is to see how many learners can go through the obstacle course in the allocated Physical Education time frame of 45min!
The school that achieves the highest number of pupils through the course in the allocated time will go on to represent their province in the final, on the 5th November.
The winner of the final will receive a multipurpose sports court sponsored by the Sports Trust, to the value of R1.1 million. This court will be built on the school property.
