Sports And Wellness

The SST S & W curriculum is based on the philosophy of education through the physical, a multi-dimensional approach to develop students holistically through sports and games excellence.

The curriculum engages students actively with relevant activities that help them learn experientially. Lessons are focused on acquiring games skills for sports recreation, uncovering games concepts for understanding, and promoting sportsmanship and sporting behaviour through authentic sports participation and competition.

Besides sports and games, there is also a focus on adventure education in the curriculum. An adventure compels the participants to develop and sharpen their coping and management strategies in an ambiguous environment. It forces them to operate out of their comfort zone while having to manage their relationship with self, others and the environment. Students experience physical, mental and social emotional challenges, which are effective in developing strength of character.

Learning Objectives

At the end of four years, students will be able to:

  • Acquire a range of motor skills to participate in a variety of physical activities recreationally
