PE AND SWIMMING
PE aims to develop student’s knowledge, skills and understanding so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. To ensure that this goal is realized, each class attends two PE lessons and one swimming lesson each week lead by specialist teachers.
Units taught in P.E and Swimming include: – athletics (run, jump and throw), games (football, basketball, tag rugby, cricket and hockey), gymnastics and dance, water safety, freestyle, backstroke, breastroke and butterfly.
All the above skills are taught in a safe and motivating environment where children are encouraged to enjoy their learning and challenge themselves as individuals.
My Name is Ronnie Kalule born and raised in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. I grew up in a semi-polygamous family of 14 children, which in a way, is typical of African families of my generation. I studied my bachelors’ degree in Development studies at Makerere University and completed my teaching certification at the University of Southern Queensland-Australia in August 2009.
I am a PE teacher at Ambrosoli International School, a position that I have held since 2004. I am also a Co-Curricular Coordinator and a member of the Senior Leadership Team, a role a assumed in August 2017.
I see Physical Education and sports as an avenue to challenge kids to do better, aim higher, not just in their academic work, but in their adult life as well. The skills we learn in sports: – focus, resilience, hard work, cooperation, communication, good sportsmanship, empathy, respect for others… are key skills that come in handy at all levels! I am privileged to be in a position at Ambrosoli where I am able to put those ideas into practice to see my learners as well as myself continue to grow.
My name is Kezia Wairimu, a swimming teacher at Ambrosoli International School. I am a Ugandan by nationality holding a Bachelors’ Degree in Quantity Surveying from Makerere University and have done a number of FINA coaching courses. I am passionate about swimming and have swum competitively for my University. I have also taught swimming since 2013.
I joined the Ambrosoli family in 2017 where I teach swimming to young learners from kindergarten to year six. I find swimming as an opportunity to impart into students lifelong skills like resilience, adaptability and respect among others. I take particular pleasure when I see swimmers learn the basic fundamentals in swimming such as safe water entry and exit and the correct stroke technique which they then carry on at a higher level when they leave primary school. I am privileged to be at Ambrosoli where I can put into practice the ethos mentioned above.
