Physical Education


Vision


A distinctive Physical, Health, and Dance (PHD) curriculum designed for YTzens 

Mission


To nurture physically educated YTzens who pursue lifelong physical activities 

Philosophy, aims and goals of Physical Education


The philosophy of PE in YTSS is to allow the occurrence of participation in a student-centred teaching curriculum as opposed to a teacher-centred teaching curriculum. The teacher facilitates learning activities that have the potential to provide students with a holistic education that promotes social-emotional, physical, and cognitive learning outcomes. The emphasis is on active learning that involves the processes of decision-making, social interaction and cognitive understanding for our students. 

PE Learning Outcomes for YTzens


As a department, we would like our YTzens to be:

Confident Leaders
• To be able to articulate what they have learnt in PE@YTSS
• To build character through sport
• To be creative and have self-confidence during PE
• To perform a variety of physical activities with understanding (e.g. demonstrate)
• The ability to play and understand the rules and concepts of games in at least two games in each of the following classifications:
1. Territorial/invasion games
2. Net/wall games
3. Striking/fielding games

Active Citizens
• To participate fully during PE and encourage participation amongst other YTzens

Global Thinkers
• To take ownership of their own health and understand the implications and benefits of involvement in physical activities (lifelong participation in physical activities)
• To be passionate about learning new things

The PE Department offers the Sports Education Programme (SEP) Module which creates opportunities for students to be engaged in not only the techniques of playing different games but also in sport-related research work. Offered at the different levels and streams, the various modules – dance and recreational sports, engage students in mental, emotional and physical activities.

Secondary One Dance


The Secondary One Dance programme is catered to all secondary ones. The dance programme teaches students basic dance movements and simple dance chorography. At the end of the year, selected groups gain the opportunity to take part in the culminating programme Time2Dance, where they showcase their talents to the rest of the Secondary One Cohort.

YT Fiesta @The Park


The inaugural YT Fiesta @ The Park was held at Sembawang Park and consisted of 3 components: The Cross Country Run for all levels, Tag Archery Competition for selected Secondary 2 and 4 students and Orienteering for selected Secondary 1 and 3 students. The event encouraged mass participation amongst all staff and students and ensured that everyone had a fulfilling day at the park.
