Physical Education


HOD PE/CCA: Ms Serene Ng 

SH PE/CCA: Mr Mohamed Faizal Abdul Salam


Mission

To develop in the students, the desired physical skills, practices, and values, to enjoy a lifetime of active, healthy living.

Vision

A Community of Healthy, Active and Competent Movers

Approach

In the lower primary, the teachers used Movement Education to encourage the learning of basic and generic skills such as fundamental movement skills, dance and gymnastics. Through Movement Education, the students learn through experiences and construct their own understanding, instead of being told. In addition, they acquire a variety of manipulative skills sets required for gameplay through fun and engaging activities.

In the upper primary, the students’ physical ability is further developed through play in modified games settings. The Games Concept Approach (GCA) is used to teach performance skills and tactics in modified games. As students play and experience authentic problem-solving situations, they get to be fully engaged in physical, cognitive and social challenges that promote their holistic learning.   

Specific goals of Physical Education 

Goal 1: Acquire a range of movement skills to participate in a variety of physical activities. 
Goal 2: Understand and apply movement concepts, principles and strategies in a range of physical activities. 
Goal 3: Demonstrate safe practices during physical and daily activities with respect to themselves, others and the environment. 
Goal 4: Display positive personal and social behavior across different experiences. 
Goal 5: Acquire and maintain health-enhancing fitness through regular participation in physical activities. 
Goal 6: Enjoy and value the benefits of living a physically active and healthy life. 

The Physical Education Framework 

The 2014 PE syllabus seeks to achieve the goals of physical education based on the framework below. At the apex is the purpose of physical education, achieved through the learning areas to enable students to develop efficiency, effectiveness at and versatility in their movement.
