BISS is proud to boast an Athletics programme full of variety and opportunities for our Elementary and Secondary students. The tables below list the teams and special one-off tournaments and events the students can participate in.

BISS is a member of the Association of Chinese And Mongolian International Schools (ACAMIS), and of the International Schools Activities Conference – Beijing / Tianjin (ISAC). Our membership provides our students a chance to compete with other schools from the Beijing area, Shanghai, Tianjin, Hong Kong and Taiwan. This also means students can have the opportunity to travel to participate in tournaments. This is a special time for our sports teams as comradeship and friendships are strengthened during these events.

Sportsmanship, positivity and empowering our students are the key goals of our athletics programme at BISS. We encourage all students to further their skills, try something new and enjoy the balance that sports and exercise can bring to their school life.

I. Course Description

The our PE aims to empower students to understand and appreciate the value of being physically active and develop the motivation for making healthy life choices. To this end, physical and health education courses foster the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes that will contribute to a student’s balanced and healthy lifestyle. Through opportunities for active learning, courses in this subject group embody and promote the holistic nature of wellbeing. Students engaged in physical and health education will explore a variety of concepts that help foster an awareness of physical development and health perspectives, empowering them to make informed decisions and promoting positive social interaction.
