Physical activity and exercise play an important part in the life of an A. Fantis student, and our school is fortunate to have a spacious gymnasium.Not only do our students explore how to be physically fit, they are also learning the importance of good sportsmanship, and how it makes us better individuals.
Students Grades K through 8 have three sessions in the gymnasium a week. Pre-school children also enjoy discretionary use of the gymnasium above and beyond the lessons that form part of their curriculum.
In Pre-school and the lower grades, the emphasis is on listening to and learning rules, practicing new skills, and having fun.
Students in Grades K through 8 also have health class twice a month where specific topics and themes such as hygiene, healthy relationships, proper nutrition and fitness are discussed.
