Describe the physical education resources at the school. Is there a gym? A swimming pool? Are there playing fields or tennis courts available?

There is no swimming pool, nor tennis courts. There is a gym, and the soccer field is nice, but I understand it shuts down when tensions rise in the favela due to concerns that the schoolchildren could be affected. The school wisely has a "no open space" policy that they put into place when it sounds like an increase in fighting at the favela. From my count, we receive an average of 5 "no open space" policy emails per month. - Oct 2018

B- The P.E. curriculum was excellent and covered a broad variety and aspects of individual and team sports.The recreational areas, however, do not have any playground equipment for kids over age 7 and there's no grass for soccer at this campus.(The facilities at the Barra campus - far away - are lovely.)P.E. is also only once a week beyond the early grades, and I think it should be more frequent. - Jun 2011
