Sport is a key element of our balanced curriculum

Our supportive and motivating learning environment ensures that we provide the ultimate foundation for future success. There is a large and diverse range of sports and fitness activities, providing opportunities to develop sporting interests that will last a lifetime.

Every student has the potential for greatness

While academic achievements are important for the development of a child, involvement in sports is also important. The skills, concepts and knowledge learnt from sports can help contribute to the academic success of students. In addition to developing the motor skills of young children and inculcating healthy life-long habits, sports can also develop patience and persistence in an individual. Effective communication, the ability to take decisive action and team building are attributes that are best learnt via sports and can be applied in many other aspects of life.

Students have a minimum of two PE lessons per week as well as a great variety of extra-curricular sports activities to take part in, either competitively or for enjoyment, and clubs are run for all abilities. Your child may also have the opportunity to be part of our competitive sports teams throughout the academic year, playing in the Athletic Conference of Singapore International Schools (ACSIS) league and competing in three seasons across the school year in the sport of their choice.
