Physical & Health Education
The school’s physical education programme is a primary contributor to building a strong foundation for the development of broad-based physical competencies and opportunities for recreational participation. Building upon the physical education programme, the sports Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) programme provides opportunities for specialisation in a sport, as well as broad-based development within the specialised sport and across other sports. Together with other school programmes, physical education and sports CCA contribute to holistic education and the development of 21st Century Competencies to better prepare each individual to thrive in a fast-changing and highly-connected world. Figure 1 shows a diagrammatic representation of the framework.
