Besides aligning the PE Curriculum to the Ministry of Education’s syllabus, the school also carries out other initiatives to further enhance our pupils’ learning:

  • Break Fun Activities during recess
  • Health Week to inculcate active living and healthy eating habits
  • Mass Exercise e.g. Jump Jam
  • Enrichment Activities e.g. Badminton

Rubrics are used to assess the pupils’ level of proficiency in the three domains:

  • Cognitive: mental skills (Knowledge)
  • Affective: growth in feelings or emotional areas (Attitude)
  • Psychomotor: manual or physical skills (Skills)

All Primary 4 and 6 pupils take the NAPFA test conducted yearly to assess their overall physical fitness.

Instruction

Individual Development

Pupils are involved in a variety of activities that will enhance their self-esteem, act as a stress reliever, teach them the joy of movement and effort, cope with risk and adapt and persevere when the task proves difficult. Through these activities, pupils learn to connect with their peers, cooperate and compete. They learn to take risks, compromise, respect rules and boundaries and develop spatial awareness.

Social Interaction

Competition and cooperation require both individual and group abilities. Group skills may involve playing alongside others, playing against others in different-sized groups, and working with teammates against opponents. Through these activities, pupils learn to give and accept feedback and constructive criticisms, give and accept responses to winning and losing, demonstrate a willingness to share and accept ideas. They then gain an appreciation of the differing abilities of others within society.
