Learning for Life Programme
Learning for Life Programme (LLP) @ Qihua Primary School
Sports Development Programme
The guiding principle of Qihua’s Sports Education Programme (SDP) is that positive values and life-skills associated with sporting pursuits and success can be directly taught, nurtured and learnt. It develops our students into athletes of good character and be valued members who would contribute to a healthy and sporty society.
The SDP is anchored on school values and focuses on creating social interaction. It provides ideal opportunities for students of different races, nationalities and social backgrounds to hone their Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies such as relationship management, self and social awareness. Students would have opportunities to recognise and manage their emotions, develop care and concern for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, as well as handle challenging situations effectively. Hence, opportunities are also created for students to develop the 21st Century Competencies of Civic Literacy and Cross-cultural skills.
The table below shows how the SDP caters to the development of students.
