STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Because the Ateneo aims at the wholistic development of all of the students’ faculties, it aspires to deepen competencies in different fields and disciplines.

As valuable attention is given in developing the capabilities of students in academics, of equal value is the value of a program that addresses the students physical education. Through the regular curriculum as well in the co-curricular and varsity sports program, the school aims to achieve a similar end- the continued realization of competencies in the field of athletics.

From among these students who undergo their regular physical education curriculum emerge those students who are identified to possess special aptitude in sports . It is these students who are provided opportunities outside the context of conventional classroom instruction (but instead through a co-curricular program) to foster the needed skills and values necessary for the sharpening of his competencies.  Through the varsity program,  the student athlete of the Ateneo Grade School may hopefully utilize these strengths and talents for God’s Greater Glory.

With this primary end in mind, the Ateneo Grade School provides, operates and maintains sports facilities for the students’ Physical Education Program and secondarily for its varsity and co-curricular program.

The Ateneo de Manila grade school currently houses two major sports facilities that are also regularly used by the various units in the University. These are the newly renovated  Ateneo Grade School Swimming  Pool as well as the Covered Courts. Its use is mostly confined to the above mentioned purposes . There are also occasions when the facilities are used for other purposes ( such as general assemblies, gatherings )

THE ATENEO DE MANILA GRADE SCHOOL SWIMMING POOL .

The purpose with which the Ateneo Grade School was constructed was to provide a facility with which the Grade School Children and their instructors can conduct Physical Education Lessons ( particularly swimming).

Having this as its main purpose, the specification of the pool, such as the pool depth, dimension and location are meant to meet the nuances of teaching swimming to grade school children.

Since its construction in the late 60’s, its use has evolved into a training facility for varsity students from the grade school, high school and college. Owing to the fact that this had been the lone facility that somehow meets the requirements of varsity training, it has become a shared facility .

Despite this,  the  primary use of the pool remains to be for the Grade School Students. This is perhaps why , the recent modifications in its design, while cognizant of the needs of the other units, are catered primarily for the use of grade school children.
