Fitness and Recreation (F&R) Club

Fitness & Recreation (F&R) Club is a new programme initiated by the school to address the concern of the rising prevalence of obesity in children. We adopt a holistic approach in helping our overweight pupils to manage their weight healthily through lifestyle modifications. This includes staying physically active while maintaining a balanced diet. A variety of activities will be conducted to encourage them to exercise and stay fit. They will also be educated on healthier food options and be equipped with knowledge to make informed food and drink choices. Later in the year, making of healthier snacks will also be taught to the pupils. We hope that parents will work with the F&R Club teachers to support their children in this endeavour.
