PE & HE
Every Child Leads a Healthy and Active Lifestyle
To Inspire a Passion for Life-long Healthy Living
PHYSICAL EDUCATION (PE)
The PE programme in Fuchun Primary School aims to develop our pupils in the Cognitive, Psychomotor and Affective domains. Pupils are given ample opportunities to learn fundamental movement at the lower primary level. At the upper primary level they are then taught more detailed techniques and strategies of games. Pupils' participation and enjoyment in a wide variety of activities ensure the holistic development of the pupils and encourage life-long healthy living.
The following learning areas are covered in our PE curriculum, based on the new PE Syllabus (2014):
- Athletics (from Primary 3)
- Games and Sports
- Outdoor Education
- Physical Health and Fitness (formerly Health Education)
Goals of PE:

Sports Education Programme
The Sports Education Programme (SEP) is a collaborative partnership between Sport Singapore and the Ministry of Education (MOE). The school embarked on the SEP from 2009 and aims to increase pupils’ interest and participation in physical activities through the promotion of a variety of sporting activities. In 2016, the SEP will be offered to P1, P2 and P6 pupils.
The SwimSafer Programme aims to impart swimming proficiency and water safety knowledge to all pupils. This programme is introduced to the P3 pupils. Swimming lessons are conducted outside of curriculum time and pupils are expected to go through a test at the end of the programme.
Fuchun Play Day & Lower Primary Sports Day
Fuchun Play Day (P4, P5 & P6 pupils) and Lower Primary Games Day (P1, P2 & P3 pupils) aim to promote teamwork among pupils in the same class. Through participation in inter-class activities, pupils learn to show respect, forge friendship and exercise good sportsmanship through sports and games.
The P5 Camp aims to provide an authentic adventure experience for every P5 pupil in an outdoor setting. In 2016, our annual P5 Camp was held from 23 March to 24 March at PA Water-venture (Sembawang). That was a 2-day 1-night camp which pupils learnt more about themselves and others through challenging activities.
