All our school’s staff and students are assigned to 4 different Houses, namely Rhino (Red), Manta (Blue), Cheetah (Yellow) and Eagles (Green). The theme of animals was chosen as everyone can easily related to them and these 4 animals chosen have very strong and distinct qualities.
Run for Life Programme
In line with the Ministry of Education’s emphasis to nurture lifelong learners to ‘Learn for Life’, our school started our Run for Life Programme in 2019.
We hope that students will be able to adopt a positive attitude towards running and choose running as a lifestyle choice. Through the weekly run, we hope that students will be able to acquire and maintain their health enhancing fitness and as a result, enjoy and value the benefits of living a physically active and healthy life. We also believe that the weekly run will enhance the students’ concentration in the classroom as well. These objectives are also aligned to the goals of the Physical Education curriculum.
Each class is given a designated day and time in the week whereby the students from the class will run round the parade square and the running track, or the School Hall and Indoor Sports Hall, together with their PE teachers.
We hope that all students and teachers will reap not just physical, but also emotional and psychosocial benefits and enjoyment through their participation in the Run for Life Programme to nurture them into lifelong learners.
In order to make the Run for Life Programme more challenging and to add variety to the run, we also started a Jump Jam or Tabata aerobic workout to alternate with the run. With the Jump Jam or Tabata aerobic workout, the students get to enjoy working out to some upbeat music and get fit at the same time.
P6 Student Leadership Programme
All the P6 students went through the P6 Student Leadership Programme on 8 January 2021 in school.
We hope that all P6 students would be able to develop leadership skills and learn to communicate well with others and work as a team through this programme.
This programme was conducted in early 2021 as part of the Get It Right Programme and also hoped to provide a chance for the P6 students to have a chance to do some of the activities they missed out for the P5 Camp 2020 that was cancelled.
