The Importance Of Sport And Activities At Taylor’s International School
Kuala Lumpur, 2nd November 2015 - Sports based activities provide many positive opportunities for children. However, they can at times also raise some questions. Many parents believe that participation in sport will enhance their child'
s school accomplishments, while some believe that sport can get in the way of their child's academic achievement. Whether they help or distract from achievement depends on the extent of a child's involvement and the type of experiences they have.

At Taylor's International School (TIS), there is a full academic physical education programme where every child from Year 1 to Year 11 takes part in a wide range of sports and activities such as athletics, football, basketball, benchball, badminton, volleyball, rugby, netball, fitness and gymnastics. These lessons teach students the basic skills to play the sport, improve their physical fitness, as well as influence the development of their leadership, teamwork and communication skills. These can improve their self-confidence and self-esteem which will help in improving their academic performance. A healthy body leads to a healthy mind.

Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) also play an equally important role in school. The school offers a wide range of activities from which students can choose and then play in game situations, which may then lead to the school sports teams. At TIS Kuala Lumpur, the sports team is known as Taylor's Thunder and they are a member of KLISS (Kuala Lumpur International School Sport). Head of Sport and Physical Education, Mr. Ratcliffe, stresses the importance of school sport. "Here at TIS Kuala Lumpur, we have a comprehensive after school sports programme which allows teams to play against students from other schools, testing themselves in a more competitive environment. More than that, it allows the students to be a part of a team, playing to a common goal".

Students gain so many different skills from school sports based activities. Communication skills are enhanced, they achieve leadership qualities which they can use outside of the sports arena, and they learn how to motivate themselves. The school's core values of RECIPE is an important aspect of what students can take away from Physical Education.

Respect is a word used a lot in sport. At TIS students are taught to respect each other, their opponents as well as the officials.
Excellence. Although winning is what we all strive to do, the school nurtures and focuses each student to perform at their best.
Communication. Improving how we talk to each other and working together towards a common goal.
Integrity. Applying sportsmanship in all areas of play.
Passionate. Not going into things half-hearted, trying their best and applying themselves the best they can.
Enjoyment. Playing sport with their friends can be some of the most enjoyable moments in a child's life. So win, lose or draw, the school makes sure that the students enjoy the experience.

Parents not allowing their child to play sport as they have tuition, or an upcoming exam is a popular thing that PE staff hear in Malaysia. Studies have shown that exercise is an excellent way to relieve the many stresses that build up in children, especially during exam periods. Thirty minutes of exercise is beneficial to the brain and has more benefit than an extra half hour of revision. The secret is having a blend of the two. Time management comes to the fore and a combination of study and exercise whether recreational or competitive certainly can benefit each and every child. This is what the school strives to have in each child at TIS Kuala Lumpur.
