Physical Education (PE)

Key Strategies

The QtPS PE department strives to enable students to demonstrate individually and with others, the physical skills, practices, and values to enjoy a lifetime of active, healthy living. Students are engaged through a variety of experiences in areas such as Athletics, Dance, Games & Sports, Gymnastics, Outdoor Education, Swimming and Physical Health & Fitness. 

The curriculum is structured progressively with lower primary students focusing on developing their fundamental motor skills and movement concepts, and the upper primary students learn more complex combination of motor skills and game-related concepts.

Students receive regular feedback from teachers and peers, and they are given the opportunities during PE lessons to take ownership and become self-directed learners.



P3 Swimsafer 2.0

The P3 SwimSafer 2.0 programme aims to build important life skills in our students such as water safety and basic swimming skills.

It consists of a total of 12 lessons and assessment will be conducted at the end of the programme. Students will be grouped and attend lessons according to their current swimming competency level. To ensure the safety, each group will consist of no more than ten students, with one swimming instructor. At the end of the programme, students are awarded the swimming certificate according to the level of competency they have achieved.

P4 Camp

The annual P4 camp is a 3 days 2 nights stay for all P4 students. We aim to bring students' out of their comfort zone via a series of activities which help them to learn to be independent, foster friendships and overcome challenges. The camp is a school programme through which we raise our students’ Social Emotional Competencies through activities such as high elements (Zip Line, Abseiling, Rock Climbing and Challenge Rope Course), low elements (Problem Solving and Team Building Games) and finally gathering for a campfire.


Sports Education Programme (SEP)

Sports Education Programme (SEP) is organized for P3 to P6 students to advocate the importance of sports education, encourage sports participation, and increase the opportunity to engage in sports. The programmes also fosters team spirit and character development, and aim to arouse interest and continual participation of sports in our students.

The Play@Recess allows students to engage in unstructured play with their friends during recess. Other than providing an opportunity to exercise and keep fit, students also get a chance to develop their social skills through the interactions with friends from different classes and levels. They also practise responsibility by looking after and returning the equipment that they loan out to play.
The games that are available include badminton, football, Captain's Ball, catching and other creative games that our students come up with. With so much fun and games available, no wonder our students look forward to recess!
