CCAs / PE Dept
Every Child a Sportsperson
To develop the child holistically under the CAMPS domains by inculcating the school’s values through active participation in physically and healthy activities.
Co Curriculum Activities (CCAs)
CCAs play an important role in developing our pupils holistically. Through CCA, pupils discover their interests and talents. Friendships are forged among peers from diverse backgrounds as they learn, play and grow together. At the same time, pupils develop values and 21st Century Competencies that will prepare them for a rapidly changing world. Participation in CCA fosters social integration and deepens pupils’ sense of belonging, commitment and sense of responsibility to school, community and nation.
Talent Identification and Development ProgrammeSports Day
The Talent Identification and Development Programme in EDP is part of the school’s approach to customize our CCA programme to cater to the talents and interest of our pupils. A Talent Identification selection exercise is conducted for all P2 pupils at the end of Term 2. The aims of this programme are:
- To provide a longer runway for our talented pupils to pursue and excel in their area of talent and passion.
- To expose our pupils to meaningful CCA experiences to discover their strength of character.
- To provide a platform to develop in our pupils, the school values and school spirit.
In EDP, we have two separate Sports Days to provide greater opportunity for more pupils to participate actively in the various sporting events. The events and games are also customized to the meet to the different ability and needs of the Lower Primary and Upper Primary pupils.
SwimSafer 2.0 Programme
SwimSafer 2.0 programme is a national water safety program developed to raise the standard of swimming proficiency in Singapore. This program will help evolve your child from a non-swimmer into a good swimmer. In EDP, all pupils in Primary 3 are encouraged to participate in the programme.
CCA Experience is about providing opportunities for Primary 3 pupils to have an experience of the various CCAs. The pupils will experience the selected CCAs for two weeks period before making their decision in choosing a CCA for themselves.
During the respective recesses, sports equipment are made available for our pupils to play in a supervised environment as part of the Play@Recess programme. Pupils are encouraged to make new friends from other classes, share the equipment and play together. Play@ Recess allows our pupils to further enhance their SEL competencies.
Sports Enrichment Programmes for Primary 4 and Primary 5 (SEP)
The SEP aims to advocate the importance of sports education, encourage sports participation and increase sporting opportunities for the pupils. Sports programmes under SEP should cater for development of skills and sports knowledge of pupils and help promote active participation of sports in schools. These programmes promote team spirit and character building, and arouse interest in continual sports participation amongst pupils.
