Every Clementian is fit, skilled and knowledgeable to pursue a healthy lifestyle
To develop every Clementian physically, mentally and socially through a movement-based curriculum
The most important and fundamental goal in the teaching of the physical education lessons and CCA is to prepare pupils for the challenges of the 21st century. The school provides opportunities for Clementians to attain the skills and knowledge to be physically active as part of their holistic development. Pupils should become competent in the various movement forms, execution of motor skills, positive social skills and, more importantly, learn to enjoy physical activity with awareness of personal and group safety.
Pupils at P1-P3 levels (Lower Primary) should derive developmental and personal meaning from the various movement activities learnt. As they learn new skills while enjoying the process, they will gain competence in movement ability.
At the Upper Primary levels, the exposure and participation in physical activity provides important opportunities for group membership, challenge and social interaction. It serves an important role in the individual physical maturation processes. It also provides them greater opportunity for self-expression and achievement.
It is hoped that pupils will be rewarded with these benefits such that they will continue to actively pursue lifelong physical activities that meet their own needs. Pupils will also benefit cognitively through understanding the cause and effect relationships between an activity and its immediate and identifiable effects on the body. They will also increase their physiological strengths and awareness of their surroundings. This, in turn, gives them a well-rounded and comprehensive perspective on the meaning of a healthy lifestyle.
Lessons taught would include these components:
- Games and Sports
