Physical and Health Education
Physical Education (PE) is an important component in our schools’ curriculum, from primary to pre-university levels. Since 1959, the objective of the subject has been to equip our students with the knowledge, skills and attitude to lead a physically active and healthy lifestyle throughout their life. With this objective in mind, the PE syllabus has been reviewed and the PE syllabus 2014 will be introduced in stages from 2014.
The PE Syllabus 2014 will lay a strong foundation for a lifelong pursuit of a physically active and healthy lifestyle. It will create more opportunities for students to participate in recreational sports competitions. It will also make use of the PE settings to help our students develop their characters and values. With the inclusion of Outdoor Education in PE, students will get to understand more about the environment as they learn to navigate, assess risks and make decisions about their own safety, while enjoying the outdoors
