Balmacewen has made Health and Physical Education a focus area. We understand that when children are fit, healthy and have a high self esteem, they become better learners. We also recognise that there are many intangible qualities within sport which can't be taught, like team work, comradary and how to deal with winning and losing. Balmacewen offers a wide range of sports with skilled and dedicated coaches.
Balmacewen also has a weekly House Sport competition. Each House Group competes against other houses to gain points for the Clarke Cup. Year 8 students are selected as House Captains and Deputy House Captains at the beginning of Term 2 and lead their House Groups in annual school sporting events as well as at House Sport.
Annual sporting events at Balmacewen:
Winter Exchange with John McGlashan and Columba College (girls netball, girls and boys basketball, girls and boys hockey, boys football and boys rugby)
If there are any queries regarding sport at Balmacewen, please get in touch with Sports Co-ordinator, Bella James at firstname.lastname@example.org

Tomorrow (Wednesday 8th December) we have a tabloid sports day at school all day. It is run by our house leaders. Students are asked to wear correct school PE gear to and from school, thus leaving an opportunity to have correct school uniform washed and ready for our formal assembly on Thursday morning. Thank you
