An EVG Community with a Passion for Health
To equip our students with the skills, knowledge and attitudes to pursue a physically active and healthy lifestyle
Key Programmes for mass participation
Our key outdoor programmes include the Sec 1 Outdoor Experience and Sec 2 Adventure Camp which are held every year. These camps are aimed at promoting self/peer leadership, self-confidence and peer interaction. They also create opportunities for students to develop SE competencies of Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Management and Responsible Decision making through various team-building activities.
An annual event since 2007, the EVG Road Run provides an excellent opportunity for staff, parents and students to interact while engaging in exercise. The Road Run also incorporated a ‘Fun Run/Walk’ element so as to encourage students who were overweight, students with asthma and other medical condition to participate.
The EVG Sports Carnival is a key initiative which offers sports competitions to all EVGians to encourage mass sports participation (Eg: Inter-House Badminton, Soccer, Dragon Boating and etc). These competitions are meant to enrich the student’s experience in playing sports and to enable them to continue playing the sport as recreational activities beyond school.

Character & Leadership Development through Sports
Singapore Sports Council (SSC) developed the CLDS Framework that features the use of game activities and specific role playing for the learning and development of performance, social and moral values and attributes. Evergreen Secondary School is one of the pilot schools to adopt this framework into PE lesson planning. The CLDS Framework works on the basis that ethical lessons and values-in-sport must be specifically “taught” rather than just caught from the experience. Through CLDS, the explicit teaching of values and student leadership development is infused into the PE pedagogies.
- Character and Values taught during PE Lessons
- Training Workshops for PE Teachers from other schools
MOE ExCelFest 2014
On 11th and 12th April 2014, the EVG PE department participated in the MOE ExCel Fest 2014 as an exhibitor and the EVG PE Department’s Life Skills Based Classroom Curriculum is shared. The new curriculum helps students to see the importance of Health Education and also provide teachers with various ideas on Pedagogical Approaches and Assessment Tools to increase student engagement and learning in the classrooms. The team also believes that Physical Education and Health Education lessons should be key platforms for Character Development and values integration. Our school values of Respect, Integrity, Commitment and Enterprise are linked to PE and Health Education explicitly.
