National School Games 2014
The National School Games (NSG) Opening Ceremony was held on Thursday, 6 February 2014 at the ITE College (Central). The NSG is the pinnacle for most student athletes, where it is a time for them to pit their skills and wits against one another after months of arduous preparation. The NSG Opening Ceremony marked the start of the exciting school sporting calendar. It is also a time to celebrate our students’ successes and encouraging those who fell short of their targets.

In Hong Kah Secondary School, we paid tribute to our student athletes and teachers in charge by holding our own ceremony for our sports CCAs. The ceremony was conducted on 19 February 2014 in the school hall. Our Principal, Mdm Sung Mee Har, delivered her opening address, where she provided sound advice and optimism to all student athletes before reading the message from Minister for Education, Mr Heng Swee Keat. Subsequently, the head of sports leaders, Nurishmahshah Bte Soevarshah (4E2) led the team captains and members from the various sports CCA in reciting the Athletes’ Oath. The sports CCA teachers-in-charge also recited the Coaches’ Oath, led by Mr Kenneth Leong.

The ceremony sought to highlight to the students that
  • Athletes should train well and compete safely 
  • Winning is not everything; it is the process that matters more as it helps them acquire discipline, teamwork, perseverance and resilience 
  • Everyone involved must uphold the school’s values at all times

Cross Country Meet 2015
Through the schoolwide sports events organised, we aim to develop ruggedness of character and mind, teamwork and sportsmanship in our students.  One of such events is the Cross Country Meet which also aims to build a sporting school culture in the school. On 13th February 2015, students were encouraged to run a distance of 2 km along routes marked out in the Jurong Central Park. 

This was the first time that the Cross Country Meet was carried out at the venue.  As part of progressive training, in the months of January and February, aerobic endurance training was infused into the PE Curriculum to ensure that all students would be physically ready to go through their designated routes during the event.

Football For All

The Football for All programme leverages on our Football Niche status and focuses on developing skills, nurturing interest and appreciation through the curriculum and co-curriculum. One of the main components of the programme is a 10-week football module conducted during the PE lessons for the Sec 1s and 3s. Inter-class competitions are held at the end of the football modules. At the upper secondary level, pupils who are interested to learn more are given the opportunity to join the school team in training and participate in friendlies. Learning journeys to football matches (National Schools and S League matches) are also conducted to expose and educate pupils through authentic competitive experience. 

The Football For All programme adopts the following approaches:
  • Introduction and exposure to basic football
  • Focus on fun and enjoyment of the game
  • Development of Sportsmanship and Fair Play
  • Participation in Intra school competition. (Inter Class and House Olympics)
  • Game Appreciation through Football Learning Journeys.
  • Spectatorship Etiquette education through Football Learning Journeys.

MOE EXCEL Fest 2012

The PE Department’s Action Research project entitled ‘Character Development through Football Excellence’ was selected among 200 applications and was presented in the prestigious MOE Excel Fest in 2012. The PE Department seeks to enhance, improve and infuse this character development initiative into its Football for All@HKSS programme.
Sypnosis of PE Department’s Action Research project
Character Development through Football Excellence - ‘Winners Play Fair’
In view of the recent controversies in School Sports, the need for character education to empower student athletes to develop good sportsmanship and ethical decision-making becomes apparent.

Hong Kah Secondary School’s PE department embarked on an Action Research project using a structured character-building programme to develop positive behavioural change in its school athletes. An experimental study was conducted on the school’s football team to assess the effectiveness of the structured character-building programme.
The key findings for the research include changes in the experimental group’s attitude towards the game, the effects of positive role modelling by teachers and coaches on their behaviour and their willingness to exhibit respectful behaviour towards opponents. Further research is being conducted to determine the effects of such a structured character-building programme on the footballers’ off-the-field behaviour.


The percentage of students passing the NAPFA test is used as an indicator of the fitness level of our student population.  The objectives of NAPFA are to:
  • Promote the attainment of desirable levels of overall fitness among pupils

  • Obtain more reliable information on the physical fitness of pupils
NAPFA involves a series of five stations and a 2.4-km Walk-Run (1.5-mile Walk-Run) for secondary school students or a 1.6-km Walk-Run for primary school students. All of the station tests are attempted on the same day, with a 2–5 minute rest period permitted between stations. Under certain circumstances, the Walk-Run item may be attempted on a different day, although sometimes a 2-week window limit is set.
The test items are:
1. Sit-ups: Maximum in one minute
2. Standing Broad Jump: Better of two distances
3. Sit and Reach: Better of two attempts with floating zero point
  • Pull-ups (for males 15 years and above only): Maximum in half-a-minute or

4. Shuttle Run: Faster of two 4×10 metre attempts
5. 2.4-km/1.6-km Walk-Run: Minimum time on firm and level surface
