Learning For Life Programme
Kranji Primary School has identified character development through sports as the focus of our Learning for Life Programme (LLP). Through sports, we seek to develop our students to be Champions in Life. While a champion is largely seen as an individual who wins the top prize, a Kranjian Champion is a self-directed learner who strives for excellence in all aspects by:
• demonstrating perseverance and resilience in the pursuit of excellence;
• exercising initiative and taking responsibility for own learning;
• communicating and working effectively in teams and
• being adaptable in taking on challenges of the future.
Our LLP adopts a whole-school approach to develop Kranjian Champions and build their character through sports. The overall sports curriculum is driven by three thrusts, namely, Sports Essential, Sports Experience and Sports Excellence.
Undergirding these three thrusts are the school core values and the development of the 21st CC. Employing a structured approach with a strong emphasis on values education and competency building, the LLP will be aligned to the 21st CC standards and benchmarks, delineating what students should know and are able to do.
This is the foundational thrust of our LLP. Through Physical Education and Character and Citizenship Education lessons, core knowledge, skills and values will be imparted to every student. This will help to ensure that our students gain a good start in becoming a champion in life.
This thrust seeks to provide Kranjians with both competitive and recreational sporting experiences to further reinforce their aptitudes and attitudes in becoming a champion in life.
Competitive sporting experiences are effective platforms to nurture positive traits such as resilience and sportsmanship. We will design and provide opportunities for all Kranjians to participate in at least one competition. In addition, a 3-day 2-night local adventure camp will also be planned to further augment our efforts to develop character and the 21st CC in our students.
Recreational sporting experiences through Physical Sports CCA will be introduced to all students. We hope to broaden students' experiences and interests by providing recreational sports training and game plays in a non-competitive and fun environment. In doing so, we hope to promote a lifelong passion towards sports and a healthy lifestyle in our students.
This caters to the needs of high-performing students in Physical Sports CCA by providing them opportunities to further nurture their talents and strengthen their character. These students will undergo mental skills training so that they will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to manage their role as student athletes.
