A well-balanced PE curriculum that enables students to demonstrate physical skills, practices and values to enjoy a lifetime of active, healthy living.
In addition, through our myriad programmes and activities we strive to teach our students the values and attitudes that will serve them well in their future. Our Games Day, a sports themed activity targeted at all students from Primary 3 to 6 offers our students an avenue to engage in friendly competition with their fellow peers and also gives them an opportunity to display their strengths in various physical challenges. The Games Day for Lower Primary students is made up of different stations, each testing a different gymnastic ability of the student and this allows for mass participation by all.
Through the P2 SwimSafer swimming programme, we provide an avenue for our students to learn water confidence and it also enables them to master basic water skills. This programme is part of our Physical Education curriculum which is conducted in Term 1 and 2 at Sengkang Swimming Complex. The students are coached by qualified swimming instructors and they are further supervised by our own accompanying teachers who help ensure the safety of all students.
We have other engaging activities throughout the year like our P5 camp, which is held during curriculum time. We aim to conduct the P5 camp early in the year so that the Primary 5 students have a chance to work together as a class and build camaraderie. The purpose of this camp is to provide opportunities for our students to learn to be independent, acquire some basic life-skills, be self-disciplined, learn to be cooperative, and accepting towards others and be creative in problem solving. The camp has always been successful and it definitely gives our P5 students enriching experiences and wonderful memories that will stay for them for years to come.
At North Spring, we certainly strive to ensure that we help build our students character as well as resilience so that they leave North Spring better prepared for their years ahead. In the spirit of mass-participation, the Wellness Department will continue to strive to ensure that all students are engaged in all of the School’s Wellness activities for years to come.
