Promoting Physical Literacy
From purposeful play to competitive team sports, athletics is an integral part of the Ridley College experience. Our athletic programmes give students at all grade levels the opportunity to develop physical literacy and understand the importance of physical activities in a flourishing life.
Physical Literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. This practice is also increasingly linked with the cognitive development of children and our long-term cognitive, mental, social and physical health as individuals and as societies.
