Physical education in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) extends beyond mere participation in sports and games. It aims to cultivate intelligent performers and foster an understanding of the significance of a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Over the five years of the MYP, students develop physical skills, critical thinking, reflective abilities, a sense of responsibility, and interpersonal and self-motivational skills. Students acquire transferable skills and conceptual understanding by exploring various key concepts, preparing them for success in diverse areas. Our extra-curricular programme offers ample opportunities for students to enhance their Physical and Health Education (PHE) understanding and abilities through participation in competitive or non-competitive activities.

Within this framework, our school offers an enriching pathway for students to develop a deeper understanding of sports science further. Following the MYP, students have the chance to pursue the study of Sports and Exercise Health Science. This course provides a platform for students to investigate Human Movement, Capability, and Biomechanics with depth and rigour. Through inquiry-based learning, students explore the intricate connections between physical activity, health, and performance. By applying scientific principles to athletic training and health optimization, students develop practical skills and theoretical understanding essential for careers in sports medicine, fitness coaching, and related fields. The Sports and Exercise Health Science course not only appeals to sports enthusiasts but also equips students with valuable insights and skills applicable to a range of professional pathways.

Moreover, our school takes pride in our students’ achievements in sports competitions on an international level. Our teams excel in Volleyball, Basketball, and Football, consistently bringing home victories against other esteemed international schools. Throughout the seasons, our athletes participate in various international tournaments, showcasing their skills and sportsmanship on a global platform. Such success not only highlights the dedication and talent of our students but also reinforces the importance of sports as a means of promoting teamwork, discipline, and physical well-being within our school community.
