It has the potential to provide opportunities for those inclined towards sports. A sports-for-all culture will provide the critical mass from which sporting talents can be spotted. It will also help propel an energetic sports industry. An environment for sporting excellence will invoke national pride and invite international respect. "

Programmes & Activities

Sports for All

This programme is intended for all P1-P3 pupils. They will undergo various activities that will encourage mass participation. This is done to develop the pupils individually as better athletes. In addition, these activities help to provide a large talent base for the sports CCAs. Students identified will be groomed under the ‘Sports for Excellence’ programme.

Sports for Excellence

In our ability driven education system, the Sports for Excellence programme provides the platform to develop further the potential of those who have been identified through the Sports for All programme.

Students from P3-P5 are selected to train with the school team. The students are selected from CCA trials, observation during P.E and play-time during recess.

The model for sports excellence below reflects the Sports for Excellence Programme for Hockey. Hockey is one of the school’s niche CCA as it was awarded the Programme for School-Based Excellence (PSE) by MOE.
