The PE Programme
Our PE Programme has the important objectives of:
- Giving students a holistic understanding of sports through a theoretical approach, e.g. sports science incorporation, role of sports in society, fair play, etc.
- Teaching various sports and games through the games concepts approach.
- Imbuing positive character traits, such as leadership and perseverance.
All games taught in the PE syllabus are introduced via the Games Concept Approach (GCA). The main aim of this concept is to allow students to understand the concepts behind the games, rather than the mere rote learning of the game-specific skills, without knowing how to incorporate them in the game situation.
In addition to the PE Programme, the Co-Curricular Activity Programme aims to further build upon the girls’ holistic development, through the exciting Sports, Uniformed Groups, Performing Arts and Clubs & Societies CCA’s. The Programme hopes to provide opportunities for all girls to explore their interests and maximize their potential to the fullest, outside of the classroom.
