Sportsclub Activities at a glance




Our school Sportsclub members are having a blast with exciting activities throughout the terms. The new module has begun and already we see pupils enjoying themselves learning fun activities that they can carry on as recreational sports on weekends with family. Take In-Line skating for example, some of the kids are already learning how to skate backwards. Soccer boys and girls just relish the afternoons kicking on nice grassy fields at Tampines Stadium as compared to our poor Sahara desert field in school(going to be torn up in a while for PRIME). Floorball and Frisbee members learn new skills that may not have been taught at PE lessons. You can find out more at their website. Do comment below on other fun ideas you have for our sportsclub activities for 2009!

Jr Girls come in 4th


A 4th position at the Netball Nationals marked the end of a great week for the school. Our netballers have done the school proud to be part of the top four schools in this year's netball competition. Good job girls! Well done to Mr Zanizam and Ms Daisy Ng who coached the girls on their own all the way.

Jr Hockey Boys end their campaign at Nationals



We are really proud of our boys efforts at the Nationals. They did not manage to progress further in the competition due to their strong opponents who throughly deserve to play in the next round. The team missed good chances to win certain games and can only look back and wonder what if. However, we have reflectde on what needs to be done and will go back to the drawing board. More importantly, we will work hard to be better in our next attempt at the Nationals. Keep working hard boys!

Results

SHPS vs Jurong West 2-1

SHPS vs 1st Toa Payoh 4-0

SHPS vs Chongzheng 1-1

SHPS vs St.Andrews 0-1

Keep working hard and press on boys.
