Physical Education

    

Vision

A healthy mind and a healthy body through a healthy lifestyle 

Mission 

To equip pupils with knowledge on social, mental and physical skills and values to embrace a healthy lifestyle 

Physical Education Objectives 

To enable our students to demonstrate individually and with others the physical skills, practices, and values to enjoy a lifetime of active, healthy living.


The physical education programme provides a range of movement experiences to develop students’ overall development. The purpose is to help all students develop a foundation for an active life. The lower primary level focuses on mastery of fundamental motor skills such as locomotor, non-locomotor and manipulative skills with application of movement concepts to develop efficiency, effectiveness and versatility in students’ performance. Once the foundation is laid, the upper primary level extends on the mastery of discrete skills to focus on more complex combinations and sequences of movements, and skills application in more recognisable forms of activity and games.

Annual Sports Day 2017


One of the events that our P3 to P6 pupils look forward to is the Annual Sports Day held at Yishun Sports Stadium. Practising hard during the House Practice and participating at the Sports Day has been rather memorable for many of our pupils. Besides the track events, pupils are also involved in cheerleading and banner-making displaying great teamwork, sportsmanship and true grit. For our non-competitors, our collaboration with Sports SG provides them with opportunities to participate in a non-competitive manner in relays organised by staff from Sports SG at the field. The Staff and Parent Race add to the overall excitement of this event.

Rules of Sports Safety

  1. Screening
    Check the well-being of yourself before any activity. Ignoring the signs of unwell will put unnecessary strain on the body and the body will take more time to recover. 

  2. Adequate Hydration
    Enough fluid should be consumed to avoid dehydration.Hence, ensure you have a bottle of water to consume before, during and after any physical activity.

  3. Fairplay and Injury Prevention
    Understanding the rules of the game and engaging in fair play will reduce the risk of injuring yourself or others. Ensure proper warm up is done before any physical activity.

  4. Environment
    Ensure the environment is safe before carrying out any activity. Seek for shelter immediately if there is lightning.
