PHYSICAL EDUCATION & CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES (PE, CCA & AESTHETICS) DEPARTMENT
We believe that human movement develops pupils' maximum physical potential and their related social, emotional, and intellectual growth. As such, every pupil gets to participate in a variety of sports and outdoor camping activities.
Overview of PE Programme
The school’s PE programme seeks to develop pupils into a physically educated child with a love for sports and the outdoors. By this, we hope pupils will acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to lead a healthy lifestyle.
In addition to learning skills related to Athletics, Health & Fitness, Sports, Educational Gymnastics and Dance in the PE curriculum, pupils also get to participate in a variety of activities under the “Opportunities For All” Programmes.

Weekly Sports & Health updates
A weekly sports and health update (power-point slides/videos) is provided to develop in pupils a greater awareness and interest in the two areas.
A health-promoting school
To instill healthy behaviours through holistic health programmes that will enhance pupils’ quality of life
In Dazhong, we believe strongly that health is the essential building block towards enhancing the quality of life of individuals.
- Pupils will be engaged in more out-door physical activities and also cultivate healthy-eating habits.
- Pupils will be given opportunities to practise good personal hygiene and adopt oral and vision care strategies.
Social and Mental Health
- Pupils will be provided with platforms to develop positive self-esteem and be taught social skills that are needed for interaction among themselves.
- Pupils will be equipped with strategies that will enable them to learn to be resilient and be able to cope with daily challenges.
Our Health Education Department aims to empower our pupils with the necessary knowledge and skills for them to take care of their health and the health of others, including their environment. The pupils are taught how to practise good health habits and exhibit socially responsible behaviour.
Pupils will be engaged in a variety of learning experiences through heath activities, assembly talks, project work, health-related competitions and the various health promotion programmes to learn how to take care of others and themselves.
Below are some of our health initiatives:
Our pupils will be able to:
1. Learn that good health habits will contribute to healthy growth and development of the body, e.g. practising good nutrition, hygiene and through regular exercise;
2. Exhibit good health habits in their daily lives;
3. Use social skills for effective interaction among themselves (.e.g to build friendship and resolve conflicts)
Physical Health Promotion
CNB Anti-Drug Ambassador Programme
All Primary Four and Five pupils will participate in this programme which aims to promote a greater understanding of the dangers of drug abuse and encourage peer sharing among our pupils. This also serves to strengthen the level of involvement between parents and teachers.
We are Active School Programme
The programme serves to increase the level of physical activity participation among pupils through classroom lessons and recess activities.
Through these exhibitions, pupils learn how to make healthier choices for their diet. They learn about the importance of nutrition and healthy-eating from participating in the health-promotion activities.
Oral Health Promotion
Oral Health Programme
The school dental programme aims to improve the oral health of our pupils. For example, the school’s dental nurse conducts dental talks and demonstrates tooth-brushing techniques for all Primary One and Five pupils.
