A vibrant and inclusive programmes that provides character building experience through physical education.Goals of Physical Education

Goal 1: Acquire a range of motor skills to participate in a variety of physical activities.

Goal 2: Understand and apply movement concepts, principles and strategies in a range of physical activities.

Goal 3: Demonstrate safe practices during physical and daily activities with respect to themselves, others and the environment.

Goal 4: Display positive personal and social behaviour across different experiences.

Goal 5: Acquire and maintain health-enhancing fitness through regular participation in physical activities.

Goal 6: Enjoy and value the benefits of living a physically active and healthy life.

The 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 students’ performance. Once the foundation is laid, the upper primary level extends on the mastery of discrete skills to focus on more complex combinations and sequences of movements, and skills application in more recognisable forms of activity and games. 

The PE curriculum provides diversity and breadth for the school to plan and implement a well-balanced physical education programme. The seven learning areas are:



Northoaks Olympics

 The school introduced the Northoaks Olympics to inculcate the Olympic values of Respect, Friendship and Excellence in all our students through games and sports. The Olympic values are also in line to the school’s H.E.A.R.T Values and students are encouraged to display them in their daily lives. All students recited the Northoaks Olympic Oath before the start of the school’s Olympic Carnival.

Active Recess@Northoaks
The school embarked on the Active Recess programme in 2017 to encourage students to play during recess. The programme gives students the space to interact and play with their friends. In the initial year, students are able to loan PE equipment, such as the skipping rope and the hula hoop. This year, the school has expanded the playing space and loan equipment. Besides, allowing the students to play Basketball at the court, Frisbees and Football are allowed at the school field. In the near future, the school hopes to provide a wider range of sport equipment for students to borrow. Apart from giving the students an avenue to enjoy themselves, we hope that they students can continue to practise the skills that they have learnt during PE lesson. Ultimately, the school hopes that students will have the necessary knowledge and skills to lead an active and healthy lifestyle when they leave the school.
