Physical Education

Our Objective

  • To nurture an understanding and love for life-long and healthy active living.

Our Approach

‘Head, Hands, Heart’ - Equip our students with basic knowledge (Head), skills (Hands) and attitudes / desire (Heart) to be physically active through participation in sports and games and outdoor pursuits to cultivate a life-long, healthy lifestyle.

Our Programme

In line with the PE curriculum and CCE 2021 guidelines, we teach Sports & Games (Physical Activities), Outdoor Education (OE) and Physical Health & Fitness (PHF) during PE lessons.  These modules are taught across Sec 1 to 4/5 to provide a wide variety of experiences for our students.  The fitness, knowledge & skills culminates in larger scale events to provide higher level challenges (i.e. Sports Competitions &/or Outdoor Camps, etc).
