The purpose of Physical Education is to enable students to demonstrate individually and with others the physical skills, practices and values to enjoy a lifetime of active, healthy living – Revised PE T&L Syllabus 2014. The PE Department has the vision of developing every Greenridgean to be physically fit, to embrace and to advocate healthy lifestyle.


The following are pedagogical approaches commonly used by our teachers to engage students in learning PE Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes effectively. 

1. Sport Education Model  
The Department adopts a modified version of Daryl Siedentop’s Sport Education Model in teaching PE. Students develop their competency, literacy and enthusiasm in Sports through serving in a variety of roles in authentic sport settings. Each PE team consists of a captain, a coach, a statistician, an official, a safety officer and a media specialist.     

PE Teams develop their teamwork and camaraderie through team identity and cheers as they work together to learn and develop sports skills and tactical play. 

2.  Games Concept Approach (GCA)
Through GCA, students learn to transfer their learning from one sport to another sport of similar game concepts for instance from Netball to Basketball (Territorial Invasion Game), Badminton to Tennis (Net-barrier Games) and Teeball to Softball (Fielding-Putting Games).

3. Inclusive PE
All students are included in PE lessons. Individualized Educational Programme (IEP) is prepared for students with physical challenge or medical condition so that they can also take part together with the rest of the class during PE.
