DSC03048 2Why Physical Education?

The staff of Hebron Christian College believe physical education and sport are very worthwhile activities to teach and practise. The Bible very clearly teaches and implies that these activities are important. For example, games and athletic competitions are referred to in the Bible to provide pictures of the christian life.

All Hebron Christian College, classes undertake regular physical education lessons on a weekly basis along with sport times where sporting codes are taught and practised. Codes would include: netball, football, rugby, swimming, athletics, softball, basketball, badminton, archery, bowls, cricket, cross country running, tennis, etc.
