a) House Practice
Objective: To promote healthy lifestyle and prepare students for the Annual Cross Country
House practice sessions are held from early February to mid-March on Tuesdays. A typical session involves students running at Bishan Park and doing school cheers. These sessions aim to prepare students for the annual cross country and promoting school spirit while engaging them in physical activities and making new friends.
b) Annual Cross Country
- To encourage Peirceans to jog and walk as a form of healthy lifestyle.
- To provide a platform for all Peirceans, including staff and interested parents to foster strong relationships
This is the first mass sporting event of the year and is held on the last Friday of Term 1. Not only are all students and staff involved in this event, either as runners or helpers, there is also the Parents’ Race. Besides encouraging Peirceans to jog regularly, this event is also a good platform for bonding amongst students, teachers and parents. This competition is usually held at Bishan Park.
c) Biennial Sports Carnival
- To encourage Peirceans to participate in games and sport.
- To provide a platform for all Peirceans, including staff and interested parents to foster strong relationships. The next Sports Carnival will be held in 2019.
d) Sec 2 & 3 Outdoor Adventure Camp
- To enhance the personal and social development of students through an experiential outdoor adventure.
- To promote camaraderie and school spirit.
As part of the Outdoor Education unit of the PE curriculum, level outdoor adventure camps are organised for Sec. 2 and 3 students. For the Sec. 2 cohort, this is usually held in an adventure-based campsite to provide a more authentic setting for the 3 days 2 nights residential camp. To ensure safety and a quality programme, licensed external instructors and form teachers are engaged to conduct the activities and facilitate learning. The camp programme includes high elements and a water activity besides teambuilding activities. For the Sec. 3 cohort, the school will make a booking for MOE-Outward Bound Singapore Challenge Programme whereby students get to experience a more vigorous outdoor adventure programme with students from other schools.
e) Health & Fitness Week
To promote the importance of healthy lifestyle.
Conducted in the last week of Term 3, the Health & Fitness (H&F) Week aims to celebrate and remind Peirceans the importance of healthy living. During this period, the PE department and a team of student leaders organize activities to actively engage Peirceans in body and mind. Some of the activities include inter-class games, inter-CCA challenges, health quiz, Staff versus Students 1-minute challenge and Learn @ Peirce modules. Learn @ Peirce are short exposure physical activities conducted by external instructors, examples of such courses are inline skating, muay thai, k-pop dance and archery. The H & F Week culminates in the All Children Exercising Simultaneously (ACES) Day workout. On ACES Day, Peirceans are reminded of the importance of eating fruits and drinking water. Everyone brings a fruit and eat together before the workout. The workout is usually a mass walk at Bishan Park.
