Physical Education & CCA

 

 

Department Goals

To nurture pupils who are physically fit and adopt a healthy lifestyle.
To engage pupils in mass physical activities.
To provide pupils with quality PE lessons & CCA opportunities and activities.

 

Approach

The PE programme for lower primary level focuses on mastery of fundamental motor skills such as locomotor, non-locomotor and manipulative skills with application of movement concepts to develop efficiency, effectiveness and versatility in pupils’ performance. Once the foundation is laid, the upper primary level extends the mastery of discrete skills to focusing on more complex combinations, sequences of movements, and skills application in more recognisable forms of activity and games.

 

Co-Curricular 

Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) are integral in ensuring that pupils receive a well-rounded and holistic education. It serves as a platform on which pupils can develop good character, hone their leadership skills and be active contributors to the community.

Based on the belief that individuals thrive in an environment in which all their abilities and talents are recognised and nurtured, the school promotes active participation in the co-curricular activities to develop pupils in their physical, affective and aesthetic domains.

Every pupil in Primary 1 and Primary 2 will participate in Programme for Active Learning (PAL).  Every pupil from Primary 3 to Primary 6 is strongly encouraged to participate in at least one CCA of their choice.

Upper Primary Games Day 2017

Upper Primary Games Day took place on the 25 May 2017 (Thursday) where all the P4 to P6 pupils took part in the events held at the GYPS School Field. Our School Advisory Committee Chairman, Mr Foo Kia Meng, graced the occasion as the Guest of Honour. The Upper Primary Games Day was the culmination of the hard work by GYPS pupils and staff who took time to practice for the events and cheers prepared over two months. It was also an opportunity for the Upper Primary pupils to demonstrate the school core values of Courage, Diligence, Loyalty, Honesty and Teamwork while competing to win. Through the practices and Games Day, pupils also build a sense of identity and camaraderie with the houses they belong to. The Games Day was also a day where we had our ex GYPS pupils and parent volunteers chipped in to help run the events.
