Sports at New Horizons
Our physical education program is based on the principle of innovation, which is stated in our school philosophy. This program promotes the integral development of our students through sports activities and teamwork. It promotes confidence, self-discipline, a healthy sense of competition and the development of motor skills through different kind of gymnastic routines and sports disciplines.
Students at the Early Childhood level learn skills that foster their gross and fine motor skills development in accordance to their developmental milestones. Students from 1st through 12th grade can choose to participate in any of the school’s 10 different sports electives (i.e., judo, badminton, volleyball, basketball, chess, soccer, rhythmic gymnastics, artistic gymnastics, tennis, and table tennis). The school provides a variety of disciplines so that anyone may be accommodated according to abilities and interests.
The range of disciplines was designed to include sports that are played throughout the Dominican Republic, yet it also includes certain disciplines that may not be popular yet in our country but are practiced in countries throughout the world in order to cultivate global citizenship and multiculturalism (i.e., judo, badminton). In addition, students have access to an after-school sports program in order to enrich their skills, when needed, and to foster excellence in our teams.
The physical education program has a clearly articulated vision of quality learning and defined practices that support student achievement. In congruence with the school’s vision, the physical education program seeks to cultivate the thirst for leadership in students in their disciplines. The physical education program is vivid and dynamic. The physical education coordinator, principals, assistant principals and teachers have designed a calendar with a wide amount of sport activities and tournaments where our students apply skills acquired through the program in competitions against in-house teams or intercollegiate tournaments.
The sport is an activity or regulated physical exercise, usually of a competitive nature, that can improve the physical condition of those who practice it, and also has properties that differentiate it from the game.
