Enrichment Programmes

P1 & P2 Wushu Enrichment Programme

Wushu Enrichment is a programme customised for P1 and P2 pupils. It aims to introduce our pupils to basic martial arts through engaging lessons. Throughout the programme, emphasis will be placed on hand and leg movements and coordination. Pupils will then be able to perform a basic routine.

The programme also seeks to inculcate values of Respect, Discipline and Perseverance in the pupils. Pupils reap the benefits of improved focus and better conduct. Our Parent Support Group partners the school in facilitating the values education segment together with the Wushu coaches during lessons.


P4 and P5 Outdoor Adventure Learning

Camp Odyssey and Camp Valor

The school believes in taking learning outdoors to enrich the curriculum and make learning fun and meaningful. Every year, Camp Odyssey and Camp Valor are conducted concurrently for the P4 and P5 pupils as a form of lead up to the ultimate camp experience for P6 - Overseas Cultural Immersion Camp.

  • Overcome their fears and limitations
  • Challenge themselves
  • Grow in confidence and self-esteem
  • Step outside their comfort zone
  • Develop an appreciation for nature
  • Manage risk and learn to reflect
  • Develop team-building and leadership skills

P6 Motivation Camp

P6 Camp Endeavour

The annual P6 camp serves as a motivation and reward for all P6 students who have met the expectations and requirements set by the school and their teachers. It is also an opportunity for the cohort and teachers to spend quality time together. The school has decided to explore one of our local popular attractions – Sentosa, instead of going overseas to Batam. It is a good bonding time for our P6 cohort as they engage themselves in fun-filled activities such as team-building games, laser tag games and go-kart style activity at Skyline Luge with their school mates and teachers. Pupils also learn about the ‘Leave No Trace’ principles through interacting with nature and the outdoors. The highlight of the camp is the opportunity to sleep in the Underwater World Singapore as they fall asleep looking at the colourful marine life in the tanks.
