Mission Vision

The Physical Education Department’s vision is: 
A department that develops the whole person

Its mission is : 
We are committed to develop our pupils holistically through a wide array of programmes based on the school's strategic thrusts and shared values. 

Key Programs For Each Level


1. Sports (handball) 

2. CPR / AED

3. Principles of Games

The Principle of Games or POG is based on the concept of Teaching Games for Understanding which was developed by researchers at Loughborough University. It focuses on student learning through playing games.

Our students were taught games principles under the following 3 categories:

1) Net/Barrier

2) Striking/Fielding

3) Invasion/Territorial

POG's main idea is:

1)     Break the games down into key ideas and concepts and allowing our students to play even with a beginner’s ability.

2)     Highlight the transference of games concepts across sports within the same category.

2. Outdoor Education

The Outdoor Education lessons provide the foundation for the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable students to be comfortable and safe in the outdoors. 

The module provides opportunities for theoretical concepts such as risk management to be enacted in authentic outdoor settings. It focuses on three strands:

a) enhancing physical health and wellbeing;

b) building competency in assessing and managing risk; and

c) developing a sense of place.
