Sports for Life





What is Sports for Life?
Sports for Life (SFL) is a programme that allows students to choose the sports they like as part of their curriculum. It is a programme that is very similar to Physical Education (PE), but with greater variety of sports like laser tag, ultimate frisbee, inline skating, tchoukball, yoga etc.

Why Sports for Life?

The aim of Sports for Life is to ignite students’ passion for sports and to encourage students to lead an active lifestyle. It also helps to discover students with sports talents and groom them to reach their potential. Sports for Life also provides a platform for students to make new friends from other courses.


 Through Sports for Life, you get to:

  • Learn new sports
  • Develop values like friendship, excellence and respect
  • Expand your social circle – meet peers from other courses
  • Discover your hidden talent/passion
