Learning for Life ( LLP)

Building Character Through Physical Education & Sports

Overview

Seng Kang Secondary believes that sports are key platforms for character building. Through a vibrant sports culture, our school seeks to develop active and healthy students with character, enabling them to act as advocates who promote healthy lifestyle to their peers, family and the community. They will embody the school’s values of resilience, respect and excellence , advocating that health is everyone’s responsibility.


Students across all levels are taught a myriad of sports skills and key aspects of healthy living through a rigorous PE programme. They will have opportunities to apply what they have learnt in a competitive setting at various levels. Particularly, lower secondary students will go through hockey and football modules as part of PE programme where talents can be identified for further development. All students will also undergo a basic mental skills training programme to build resilience as they face different challenges in sports and their lives.


In addition, students in sports CCA teams will go through a rigorous programme built upon a strong foundation of character development and emphasis on advocacy work. With these in mind, our school has partnered key sports organisations, polytechnics and other institutes of higher learning in order for students to be exposed to more opportunities to deepen their learning and be equipped with relevant skill sets. Students have the option of taking up courses such as sports management as part of the Advanced Elective Module, officiating, as well as attachments with sports and health organisations

Our Students’ Experience…


On Sports Education Model


“I think the model in learning PE is effective as we learn to try various roles and experience via this model. This model helps us to learn how to be for example, Coach, Scorekeeper and the other roles. This model also helps us understand the game more effectively.”


“The sports education model way is more in depth into the sport that we are playing while the traditional way is not very in depth into the sport. In conclusion, I think that the SEM version of PE is better.”


“Innovative and interesting which allows us to engage further in the games we play. Bettter way of playing games. Fun as we get along and work better as a team with the assigned roles.”


On Mental Skills Training – Advanced Elective Module:


“One meaningful thing I learnt is that no matter how others try to put us down, we should not be affected. It is meaningful to me because this teaches me how to face reality and also have good self-esteem. 2nd meaningful thing I learnt is how to cope with stress and motivate myself to do well in everything I do. It is meaningful to me because I can apply this in life and become more successful. One interesting/ surprising thing I learnt is the strategies the lecturer gives actually works and is effective. It is interesting/ surprising to me because I can apply it in real life effectively.”


“After the AEM, I wish to know more about how do you motivate or encourage a friend. Like, rather than just saying, “Come on!”. What are other stuffs you can do to motivate someone?”


“The learning experience benefited me in building up my self-efficiency and changing my mind-set to become optimistic. I discovered that I can actually be very positive if I want to.”
