MissionTo equip students with physical skills, knowledge and sound values to pursue a lifetime of active and healthy living.
Vision: Every Crestian, physically educated to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
The PE department believes that fundamental motor skills and core values provide a strong foundation for the learning, participation and enjoyment of a wide variety of physical activities. In their 4 or 5 years with our school, the students are exposed to 8 different types of sports (namely educational gymnastic, netball, badminton, softball, basketball, volleyball, tchoukball and floorball) to enhance their learning experience. We hope that the students will continue to adopt active lifestyle and play these sports at recreational level in their adulthood, in alignment with Sports Singapore Vision 2030 of “Live Better Through Sports”. As part of PE syllabus 2014, students are also taught Outdoor Education (OE) and Physical Health and Fitness (PHF). These programmes help students to achieve the six goals of physical education. The Sec 2 and 4/5 students are trained physically to be ready for National Physical Fitness Assessment (NAPFA). Our students also take part in our annual cross country, interclass game, cheering competition, swimming programme and experiential learning that enhance their school experience.
Assessment in PE
The annual cross country is held at Pasir Ris Park. In the lead up to the cross country, students train for their run during PE lessons. Besides strengthening their fitness, the training allows them to learn the importance of values, like self-discipline, perseverance and resilience that enable them to complete the race. The cross country also promotes a healthy lifestyle among the students and staff.
Cheering competition is a unique feature of PRCS. Prior to this competition, the entire class, together with their Home Tutors, spend time together to prepare and rehearse for the cheering competition. The students learn to choreograph a cheer of about 3 to 4 minutes to perform on stage as a class. Many creative cheers were devised by the students that involved physical coordinated movement, innovative cheering lyrics and use of props. Through this process, the students learn to work together as a team, peer leadership and relationship management during the process.
Sec 1 Compulsory Swimming Programme
Swimming is an important lifeskill for all students to acquire as Singapore is surrounded by water. In PRCS, Secondary 1 students undergo a compulsory swimming programme to make sure all physically fit students are equipped with this important life skill. In the programme, students are classified into different swimming groups based on their swimming competency. Different coaches were then employed to customise programme to meet the different competency level of the students. Students, who already have basic SwimSafer certification of bronze, are given the option of taking the silver and gold proficiency course. At the end of the programme, students will be assessed on their swimming competency and awarded the SwimSafer certificates accordingly.
Annual Sec 1 to 4/5 Inter-Class Games (ICG)
The objectives of the ICG for Sec 1 to 4/5 students are to encourage mass participation in sports, provide a platform for classes to compete and cheer for their class and promote healthy living. Through the ICG, students also learn to work as a team and important values, like fair play, respect and care for school mates. Students get the chance to play and compete in different sports, like floorball, softball, tchoukball, netball, badminton, that they have learnt during PE lessons.
