Physical education provides the opportunity for our pupils to be involved in physically active, socially integrated and emotionally stable activities. Our sports programme plays an important role in our students’ holistic development.
The Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPER) Department co-ordinates the overall running and coordination of the Physical Fitness Test and the co-curricular activities of the School. It conducts skills tests for all sports available, and matches talented students with the most appropriate CCA.

During physical education, students acquire a variety of skills and knowledge that involve them in healthy physical activities. Students will learn the very basic skills and rules necessary to participate in the games taught at recreation level. Through PE, we hope every ACSian will develop a lifelong interest in sports and games.
HPER also provides opportunity for intra-school competition through events such as the annual Swimming Championships, Track & Field Championships and Cross Country Championships.
As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure students’ health and safety, parents are required to complete an annual health declaration form on behalf of their child.
This information is important in helping the school to deliver safer lessons and programmes, especially those which involve physical activity and sports. Throughout the year, any change in your child’s medical fitness should be communicated to the school in writing as soon as possible.
The school organises an annual medical screening exercise for all newly admitted students to undergo a series of non-invasive screening tests. The battery of tests, which includes a resting ECG, are an added safety measure and are compulsory for students who are involved in and represent the school in sports and/or participate in vigorous physical activities.
All other students are encouraged to opt for the screening. Students who are in need of financial support for this medical screening may seek assistance through their teachers.
