These events give every student an opportunity to compete in a sporting event, which teaches them how to embrace sportsmanship and the many values that are likened to the Olympic spirit.

Talent Fiesta

Held annually in the 1st Semester, Talent Fiesta comprises of 2 components : Sports and Aesthetics.

It gives the opportunity for students to experience different games & activities throughout their education journey from P3 to P6. They will represent their own house to compete with other houses. Take a look at what's offerred to each level from the write-up below.

Primary 4 & Primary 6
Primary 3 & Primary 5
Students in Primary 4 and 6 are offered 4 different sports to choose from.

They are:
  • Floorball
  • Handball
  • Soccer (Boys)
  • Ultimate Tag (Girls)

In each sport, students will have the chance to train together and pit their skills against other Houses to prepare for the big day. Qualified PE teachers will assist teachers to umpire the various games, and the scores will be tallied at the end to determine the winners of each category.
In Primary 3, students are engaged in different Art and Craft programmes to design a piece of work.

In Primary 5, students are given a choice of 3 different performing groups to choose from. They are:
  • Ukulele
  • Dance (K-Pop)
  • Percussion (Stomp It)

Each artwork and performance will be judged by a panel of qualified teachers to determine the winners of each category. Points will be awarded accordingly to the Houses.

The overall House champion will be determined by the highest score when the results from both Sports and Aesthetics segments are combined.

Lower Primary Sports Day

This is a unique day to the P1 and P2 students of SHPS. Every student will get an opportunity to represent their house and compete with other classes in a relay competition.

The race has been specially designed by the SHPS PE department for the lower primary students! We want to provide every student the opportunity to participate in a sport competition, appreciating the social and emotional bonds they build with their friends as they compete together. Students will also learn to be resilient, as they go through successes and failures in the games and practices.

Each race comprises of skills that have been taught during the PE classes, which are in line with the new syllabus. The skills are tailored to make it challenging and fun! Students are to complete their skills at the stations in the fastest time possible in a relay style. When the last student has completed his/her skills, he/she needs to run to the Finishing Hoop and hold up a specific item to signal the completion of the race.

Each lane will have a teacher judge who will ensure that students complete each skill task correctly before moving on. The lane judge will also have a stop watch to ensure that the time taken to complete the race is recorded. A chief judge will determine which classes complete the race in order, and checks with the lane judges according to the time recorded on the stopwatch. In the event of a tie/dispute, our video judge will check the recorded footage and provide the chief judge the final decision on the standings of the race. Such orders are in place to educate our students on the importance of fair play and sportsmanship, even at a young age.

The classes have been categorised into 3 groups: Antioch, Bethel and Canaan. Each group comprise of three classes, and the winner of each group will receive a trophy to commemorate their victory. We even have a photo-booth to allow parents to capture their children with their awards! 

  • Antioch Group: P1-1, P1-2, P1-3
  • Bethel Group: P1-4, P1-5, P1-6
  • Canaan Group: P1-7, P1-8, P1-9

  • Antioch Group: P2-1, P2-2, P2-3
  • Bethel Group: P2-4, P2-5, P2-6
  • Canaan Group: P2-7, P2-8, P2-9
Join us at the next LPS Day for some sporting action from the young and energetic ones !

P3 SwimSafer

SwimSafer is a national water safety programme in Singapore introduced in July 2010 by the National Water Safety Council (NWSC), a council appointed by the then Ministry of Community, Youth and Sports (MCYS). In 2013, NWSC transferred full ownership of SwimSafer to the Singapore Sports Council (SSC). 

The programme aims to teach swimming proficiency and water survival skills to children to minimize drowning incidences in a fun manner. These skills are necessary in view that more than 60% of drowning incidences in Singapore (from 2005 to 2008) occurred in open waters, such as the seas, rivers and reservoirs.

In 2018, the new syllabus Swimsafer 2.0 has been introduced to include two assessment parts, a practical and a knowledge assessment.  As before, the practical will consists of six progressive stages, each comprising 12 hours of lesson time. For the knowledge assessment, each child has to log in to the Active Sg web-based portal to complete a knowledge test.  Survival and activity skills are taught in each stage of the programme, working progressively toward the next stage. 

At the end of each stage, each child will receive a stage completion e-certificate indicating his/her individual skill achievements.

St Hilda's SwimSafer Programme takes place at the Primary 3 level. It is a compulsory programme for all students, as swimming is part of the PE syllabus rolled out by the Ministry.

The programme will be conducted by Swimsafer Certified Instructors engaged by the school. Swimming lessons will be conducted during curriculum hours in 2018. The programme will run in the first semester. More information will be provided for the students and parents via a briefing and a letter.
Below is a suggested list of things your child should bring:

A small bag for containing the following:
Appropriate swim wear and goggles (compulsory)
Sandals and shoe bag
Sunblock lotion
Towel and comb in a small toiletries bag
Plastic bag for wet clothing

P5 Camp Kesel

The P5 camp is an iconic event unique to the level. Every student looks forward to the camp, as it is a new experience for them. For some, it is their first time staying overnight away from their parents! Many students enjoyed their time spent with friends, overcoming personal challenges and setting new records in their own lives. Through the wide range of activities planned, the students grow in their character to become more independent, resilient and confident. Students learn a lot about values in life, which are important for their growth as a person.

You can find out more about the camp from the following blog written by our very own HOD, Mr Vaithilingam!

P3 & P5 Games Day

The games day were created by the PE department, as additional programmes to provide students from the two levels with games and activities to promote a fit and healthy lifestyle. 

Fathers @ SHPS

The Dad's For Life movement has always been a great initiative that has begun in Singapore. Being one of the pioneer schools who embarked on this programme, it was a great opportunity for the PE department of SHPS to find a way to collaborate with them and promote their cause.

As part of our own community involvement project, the pe teachers in the school designed a great day of fun-filled sports for father and child to compete in or against each other. It's a little way of our own to return to the community.
