The Physical Education programme in Haig Girls’ promotes sports for character building and social bonding. In line with Vision 2030 “Live Better Through Sports” led by the Singapore Sports Council and the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports, we aim for every pupil to be physically educated leader of character.
Physical Education (PE) Plan
Weekly Mass Workout
The whole school gets together every Wednesday morning to enjoy physical activity together. The Mass Workouts vary every Term and is conducted by the school PE teachers. Each term, we have the privilege of having the Parent’s Support Group to lead in the Mass Workout.
Rope Skipping Class Challenge
From 2012, the school started the Rope Skipping Class Challenge, where every pupil is involved. All the pupils had to do is skip as many times as they can in one minute. The PE teacher will record the count for each pupil and find the class average. The class with the highest average will win the Level Class Champion and gets to display the trophy in their Classroom.
Play @ Recess
As the school encourages every pupil to play actively, recess is the best time for pupils to have fun! Sports equipment is made readily available for the pupils to use and play with their friends during recess periods.
Every Primary 5 pupil will go through the Outdoor Adventure Camp where they will learn the importance of leadership, responsible decision-making and problem solving skills which will help them overcome challenges they may face in future. They will also learn to form better relationships with fellow school mates and foster greater team spirit.
There are many different Intra-school and Inter-class Challenges for pupils to develop sportsmanship and teamwork. Challenges include Badminton, Frisbee, Captain’s Ball, Netball, Basketball, Rope Skipping, etc. Pupils will train rigorously to attain Top 2 positions. The focus is on teams’ character building and not only on winning!
