“Our bodies are our gardens to which our wills are gardeners.”


W. Shakespeare (English poet)

 

Everything we do throughout our lives leaves its mark on our bodies and our souls. Sport is one of the activities that make these marks clear and lasting. Through sports, students develop mental and physical discipline and also build their self-awareness and teamwork and cooperation skills, learn how to win and to lose and strengthen their self-respect.

 

The Physical Education program at Üsküdar American Academy is based on creating an awareness of a healthy lifestyle. The aim is to teach students to protect that structure upon which everything, throughout their entire lives, will be built, in other words their body and their mind.
