Physical education (PE) plays an important role in the holistic development of students by promoting the growth of body, mind and spirit, enabling students to experience the exhilarating sensation of well-being derived from being in an exciting match in a well-loved game, or simply from one’s regular exercise routine. Northland’s PE Curriculum articulates these outcomes through a two-pronged approach:

·       Learn to Play

Shaping students’ character, instilling good values, cultivate positive attitudes, & people skills to prepare our students with skills for life.

·       Play to Learn

Providing students with programmes that deliver real-life experiential learning & self-expression to empower them with a lifelong love for physical activity and sports.

The school delivers these outcomes by focusing on 4 areas defined under the school’s “F-A-S-T” PE Curriculum Map

Developing students’ ability to take ownership of their fitness to lead a healthy life

Developing students’ character through sports and physical activity grounded on the school values of Respect, Responsibility and Resoluteness; developing a love for sport and physical activity

Developing students’ psychomotor competencies and skills so that they can participate in recreational competitive sports and outdoor pursuits

Developing students’ problem-solving and understanding of games and sports classification and strategy so that they can participate in recreational competitive sports and outdoor pursuits
