The PE department mission is to develop healthy living among students, to equip students with knowledge and skills to pursue a life-long active and healthy lifestyle.
Physical Activity during PE
Students learn a variety of sports and games, acquiring basic skills of two major games per year in their four to five-year stint in Zhonghua Secondary School. Students learn basic skills in their Outdoor Education curriculum to be confident in the outdoor settings. They undergo progressive training for their NAPFA test during Physical Health Fitness lessons.
Interclass Games, Sports Carnival, Post Exam activities
Students apply what they have learnt during PE lessons during their interclass games and sports carnival. The opportunity to play games they have learnt in the past semester or past year allows continual honing of their acquired skills to achieve life-long learning of the games. Post exam activities are conducted to encourage students’ exposure to the outdoors.
Recreation Day and Unstructured Play
Students are encouraged to adopt an active lifestyle by taking part in unstructured play during recess and after school hours on Tuesday and Thursday. They can loan sports equipment and play at designated PE venues.
Fitness and Conditioning
Students monitor their body mass index (BMI) each semester. For students who need help to maintain a healthy BMI, a fitness and conditioning programme is held to help them lead a more active lifestyle and adopt healthier eating habits.
