Every Child Leads a Healthy and Active Lifestyle



To Inspire a Passion for Life-long Healthy Living



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)
    • Dance
    • Games and Sports
    • Gymnastics
    • Outdoor Education
    • Physical Health and Fitness (formerly Health Education)

Highlights of the department's programmes and activities

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.

SwimSafer Programme

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.



Adventure Camp

The Primary 5 Adventure Camp has always been designed as a learning experience to develop pupils’ leadership skills and at the same time, instil the Social and Emotional (SE) competencies. With that in mind, this year, an additional flag-making activity was introduced before the actual camp to provide opportunities for pupils to learn more about themselves and their peers. The activity was well-received and we saw pupils putting a lot of effort into making their group flags attractive and distinctive. During the camp, groups flew their flags proudly to identify themselves and exhibit the uniqueness of their group members. The camp activities also allowed pupils to practise how to lead through positive role-modelling, care for others and the environment, and contribute to the success of their groups, as outlined in our Student Leadership framework. A total of 192 pupils and 18 teachers participated in the 2-day 1-night adventure camp. Pupils were grouped according to their classes and put through a series of challenging activities designed to test their teamwork and resilience. Through the various activities, they also got to know their classmates better. At the end of the camp, the pupils provided positive feedback about the camp and shared their learning experiences with their groupmates and teachers.
